New 33 Names of Things You Never Knew had Names
[link|http://www.wattpad.com/3702|33 Names of Things You Never Knew had Names]

I knew items 1 (aglet), 7 (ferrule), 9 (hemidemisemiquaver), 20 (octothorpe) and 31 (tang).

From [link|http://www.ieclectic.com/new337457.html|A whatchamacallit of wordsmithing webgets].

Wade.


Is it enough to love
Is it enough to breathe
Somebody rip my heart out
And leave me here to bleed
 
Is it enough to die
Somebody save my life
I'd rather be Anything but Ordinary
Please

New A couple need clarification
15 Kick or Punt: the real reason for this indentation is to concentrate sediment into a narrow space around the edge of the bottom of the bottle so it is more caked and less likely to come loose when the wine is poured.

22 Peen: this does not apply to claw hammers. Generally the peen is round for shaping metal (ball peen) but it may be other shapes on specialty hammers.

New Well, I assumed it referred to ball-peen hammers.

New But given the practical knowledge . . .
. . of today's condo dwellers, a great many have never seen or heard of a ball peen hammer.

New Hammer? What's a hammer?
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. (Herm Albright)
New Can't touch this!

New Sobriquet of particularly noxious HR Pol?

New Some have multiple meanings, as well.
There's something called [link|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shot_peening|shot peen] that is a process in which tiny ball-bearings are applied to metals in a process like sandblasting. It serves to harden surfaces (e.g. in connecting rods of racing engines.) IOW, peen is also a verb.

[link|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrule|Ferrule] is also the name of a tapered ring in a tube fitting used to ensure a leak-tight seal that can be disconnected and reconnected several times. It's also the name for a metal clamping ring around cables, etc., to keep them from fraying and to tie them around bushings, etc.

Another list of obscure words is [link|http://www.kokogiak.com/logolepsy/|Luciferous Logolepsy].

Cheers,
Scott.
New And of course, peen is what you do with . . .
. . a ball peen hammer.

New I knew ...
1. AGLET
7. FERRULE
9. HEMIDEMISEMIQUAVER
15. KICK or PUNT
20. OCTOTHORPE
23. PHOSPHENES

But of those, the only ones I learned "organically" are phosphenes, because their a symptom of optical migraines, and hemidemi... because of years of drum lassons. The others I picked up from other "odd words" lists.

New Kneepit, orts. HTH!
-----------------------------------------
Atheism is a religion in the same sense that not collecting stamps is a hobby.
New 2 of them were familiar
AGLET was mentioned in Pratchett' Maurice and His Educated ROdents, and drageee has the same meaning in Russian (must be a French thing)

New Aglets were indeed mentioned in TAMAHER.
It was a crucial turning point for the whole story.
