The A-Z of Unusual Words is a set of prints created by an Ireland-based illustration and graphic design team called The Project Twins. Each print represents a "strange, unusual and lost" word - and I have to admit, as I scrolled through, I didn't recognize a single one. Some of these terms are so lovely, though, I think I'm going to start incorporating them into my everyday speech. Like yonderly, which is another word for absent-minded,
or montivagant, which refers to the act of hill-wandering.
And why doesn't anyone talk about tarantism more often? Apparently, it's "a disorder characterized by an uncontrollable urge to dance." (Sounds good to me.)
