Thanks Admiral Glover for editing your word. Now mine doesn't look like it is out of sequence.

Don’t know. I think Death’s horse was named Binky.

Should we have a 'challenge' thread to uncover the more obscure word connections?

Guaranteed beers from some of our contributors??

Cheers,

I find some of these posts are bad enough for me to cross reference. Even I sometimes post something out in the either. But for everyone to do it?! Don’t know.

Luciferous Logolepsy
The name of this project is also its description: Luciferous [adj. - illuminating, literally and figuratively]
Logolepsy [n. - an obsession with words], in other words: 'an illuminating obsession with words'.

Dragging obscure words into the light of day.

Personally I think this idea will fall flat. I like the current format with the occasional obscure word or words.

The ones that I struggle with are when I cannot think of any reason why a word has been used and then google it and find it is a 'Brand name' not used over here.

Port-style wines from Australia. Through the first half or so of the 20th century, most wines produced in Australia were 'fortified' wines such as Muscats, or Sherry and Port-styled wines. Now they produce delightful 'Stickies', also known as dessert wines alongside the historic tawny style port wines.
