    English is a wonderful language with some of the strangest pronunciation rules and words that come from many other languages. This is a list of 20 weird English words.

    Loudness and clarity of voice

    3. Depone
    To testify under oath

    4. Finnimbrun
    A trinket or knick-knack

    5. floccinaucinihilipilification
    Estimation that something is valueless. Proper pronunciation based on Latin roots: flockə-nowsə-nəkələ-pələ-fək-ation.

    6. Inaniloquent
    Pertaining to idle talk

    7. Limerance
    An attempt at a scientific study into the nature of romantic love.

    8. Mesonoxian
    Pertaining to midnight

    9. Mungo
    A dumpster diver - one who extracts valuable things from trash

    10. Nihilarian
    A person who deals with things lacking importance (pronounce the ‘h’ like a ‘k’).

    abecedarian :
    - a person who is learning the letters of the alphabet.
    - a beginner in any field of learning.


    Egosurfing :
    Egosurfing is looking to see how many places on the Web your name appears. Another definition reads “conducting a search of the Internet for references to one’s name or works in order to gratify one’s ego”.

    I’ve read that many CEOs and other high positioned officers do this to check how popular they are.
    Gee.. and I thought I was the only one who do this kind of stuff. I didn’t even know there’s a word for it.


    WWILF : Not a word, just an acronym for “what was i looking for”. Apparently studies have shown that majority of internet users have this wwilf moment whenever they’re online. You know, you were supposed to research for something online but decided to check your email first. Saw your friend forwarded a funny video on youtube. Watched it and continued to watch other videos under the “related” tab.
    20 minutes later you’d be wondering why you are watching a video of the Simpsons. That’s a wwilf moment (pronounced “wilf”?).

    So when your lecturer asks you why the report is delayed, just say “oh - I had a wwilf problem with the PC”. If you sound confident enough, he will back off thinking it’s some sort of a hardware problem that he don’t to get involved in.
