WWdN: In Exile Luciferous Logolepsy Welcome to Luciferous Logolepsy, a collection of over 9,000 obscure English words. Though the definition of an "English" word might seem to be straightforward, it is not. There exist so many adopted, derivative, archaic or abandoned words in what we loosely define as the "English Language", that a clear-cut definition seems impossible. For the purposes of this project though, words are included that may stretch any basic definitions. Particular attention has been paid to archaic words, as they tend to be more evocative - as if their very age lends additional meaning or overtones. (To build your own links to words, simply link to the page they are on, and add an anchor to the URL with the word, like this: ) The letters in the menu above link to separate pages with words listed in alphabetical order.
