An Article that fully satisfied my logofascination!

Today while reading my daily web comics I came across a blog that pointed me in the direction of a great article on 20 words that have fallen into desuetude. Among my favorite are:

Chaetophorous: extremely hairy
Agowilt: a sudden and inexplicable feeling of fear
Hebdomadal: something that happens to you every seven days
Loganamnosis: when you forget words and you cannot rest until they have reappeared inside your memory
Antistatis: when an act is defended by saying that, had it not taken place, then something much worse could have happened
Nikhedonia: a word for the anticipation of success
