Selcouth

Selcouth - Unfamiliar, rare, strange, marvelous, wonderful.

I'm very interested in the word "couth" and after looking it up found it was backwards generated from the word "uncouth", according to some sources. But that implies that "selcouth" is then generated from "couth". My head hurts... fascinating!

And isn't it fun that selcouth is a selcouth word?
