Wordy Wednesday: ‘Vocab101’

Vocab101 Emblem For those who do not know, Vocab101 is my daily attempt to find a new and interesting word which could potentially be used in everyday circumstances. The words I find range from the obscene, to the unbelievably true (which are hyperlinked in blue) and, of course, the colloquial. Thus, Hans’ Milieu now has a ‘Wordy Wednesday’.

Each Hans’ Milieu edition of Vocab101 will take place on Wordy Wednesdays and will contain all the words I have tweeted over the course of one week from the previous Vocab101 session (7 days, 7 new words). Furthermore, each Hans’ Milieu edition of Vocab101 will contain additional new words which did not make the original cut, but are just as tantalising/disturbing!


  • Biphonal – Using more than one phone at the same time. For example: Talking on one mobile phone while texting on another.

  • Drailing – Sending out e-mails, most often to ex-partners, whilst drunk.

  • Imonogamy – The practice of only using instant messaging as a form of communication. Yes, MXit counts.

  • Holidrawl – Adapting one’s speech patterns to match the local accent while on holiday.

  • Debauchelor – A groom whose bachelor party is particularly raunchy.

  • Cataglottism – A very rare word, used to describe kissing using one’s tongue.

  • Eccedentesiast – Someone who fakes a smile, such as a television presenter.

Vocab101-isms which missed the cut:

  • KrukolibidinousThe act of staring at someone’s crotch.

  • Lalochezia – Using foul or abusive language to relieve stress or to ease pain.

I do hope that you enjoyed this edition of Vocab101 and that you will return for some more Vocab101-isms in the near future.

Until the next time “Milieunairs”!
