2500 Good Words

Postby Dr. Goodword » Wed Aug 26, 2015 9:24 pm

Next Tuesday, September 1, alphaDictionary will run the 2500th Good Word (not counting repeats). That gives us four days to come up with an appropriate lollapalooza of a word to celebrate the occasion. I'm opening the field up to all contributors and subscribers with this note.

I'll kick off with some I like though of course they may be difficult.

Hiraeth - A homesickness for an imagined or glorified place that you cannot ever go (back) to, a Welsh borrowing that I think quite mellifluous.

Ptochocracy - a bit unusual but you've done lots of the good ones, government by the poor. Perhaps relevant with the recent entry into the presidential race of Mr Trump...
