Hi everybuggy!

I wasn't quite sure where to put this, but I thought that since books had words, this might be a good place. So basically, you can post any words you find interesting, unusual, important, sound nice, or that you just like. If you found the word in a book, you can name that too. Also, if you invent a word, those are welcome too (with their definition). 

Obviously, nothing offensive, mean, or controversial.

Here, I'll start:

one of my fave words is Onomatopoeia.

Onomatopoeia ~the formation of a word from a sound associated with what it is named

That definition is kinda unclear, it's just the one from the internet. Basically an onomatopoeia is a sound affect word like boom, bark, boo, achoo, and splash. :D

LOVE THIS!!! This is my place. WORD NERDS!! Do you know how many times I've been told, "I don't speak smart"?

One sec, checking dictionary.

Just found this one-

Percolate noun, to ooze through, to filter through.

I also like "acid" because it took me forever to learn how to pronounce.

I like the word Yarak.  It’s a falconry term meaning: fit, keen and ready to fly.  It’s usually only applied to shortwings.  ‘Sharp set’ is the correct term for longwings.
