  1. This is my favorite word ever. It usually takes at least 3 tries for me to say it correctly which could be part of the fun of it. anthropomorphosis

  2. I’m not officially a follower (more of an interested lurker), so I won’t try to cheat and slip in a word. But I can’t wait to see the post with all 42 on the final list represented!

    • I’m still 5 words short of 42 and was hoping to get more than that so I have some ‘supplementaries’ (like in the lotto!). Therefore lurkers are most welcome to suggest a word. It can’t be worse than anthropomorphism.

  3. Anthropomorphism is the attribution of human characteristics to animals, like I do with Not Cat, and a word my English teacher loved when I was at school. But the -osis ending is new to me. I imagine it must be the same thing though as words ending osis are generally nouns.

  4. how about suicidebooth! 😀

  5. Kitsch? Lascivious? Babaghanoush?

    A few spares… Transgender? Infantile? Squiggly?
