From Afterwit to Zemblanity


Concupiscible, a very rare word meaning 'worthy of being desired'; petrichor, a mid-20th century word for the pleasant, distinctive smell that follows the first rain after a long period of dry weather; there is nearly a word for everything in English.

From Afterwit to Zemblanity reinvigorates the English language with words that will make you laugh and reconsider your approach to communication. Every word will remind you of the choices we can all make with words, if only we take the time to explore and discern.
