Words of the week”


† pithanology, n.
[‘ Persuasive or seductive speech or argument; sophistry.’]

“Pithanology, which the apostle condemns, is a speech fitted of purpose, by the abuse of rhetoric,..to please and seduce.”

And this is one I’m particularly fond of myself:


zindabad, int. (and n.)
[‘ Used as an exclamation or shout of approbation or encouragement. Also as n.: an exclamation of this kind; a cheer.’]

“The collective blood pressure had skyrocketed. No Zindabads were heard.”
