The lovely Literate Kitten has tagged me with the letter meme…and I get "P"! So, what better chance to do a massive Word-hoard? Yes, yes, I know I'm supposed to come up with 10 words that start with P and say something interesting or clever about each of them, but I think these words speak for themselves...

pysmatic: pertaining to questioning; always asking questions

persiflage: a jeering ridicule; idle talk, nonsense, jeering

pitchkettled: puzzled

pygophilous: buttock-loving

pudendous: fit or proper to be ashamed of; disgraceful; shameful

palinoia: compulsive repetition of an act until it's perfect

paralian: someone who lives by the sea

periapt: an amulet worn as protection from disease or harm

philtrum: the vertical groove dividing the upper lip

poniard: a thin dagger

If you want to play, comment here and I'll give you a letter!


  1. I'd never heard the word "pitchkettled" before. Love it!

  2. Isn't it fantastic? It reminds me of another great word for puzzled - "blutterbunged"!

  3. Cool, learn something new every day. Now I have a new word to include in future ads ...
