Manual of Life - For The Lack Of Formal Approval #4

Words that should be in the dictionary, but aren't

...for some vague and arbitrary reason, even though in many cases they sound more appropriate than the 'official' words. These are distinct from 'made-up' words and 'words that should exist, but don't', due to the seeming obviousness of the reason for their existence - and the quite definite lack of their being so.

eg.,
cleant
ablutional
orgasmatory

Wow! The amazingness of this idea!

Classificatory is a word.

//there was a Motorhead album called "Orgasmatron".

Szerelem said...

eh...orgasmatory isn't a word? How??!!

??! said...

TR:
ablutive. Now that's worth including, surely?

Lekhni:
Missy, am I sensing sarcasm?

km:
I am so sure I looked it up, too! Terrible.

szerelem:
Exactly.

Let's see I got so hungry I couldn't speak - what with the excess of drool (except for the egg yolks - I've just totally gone off eating gooey egg yolks).

the orgasmatron played a wonderful cameo in sleeper.
