Word Fun

I like words and I found two interesting sites today.

OneLook.com is a Dictionary Search. It finds words related to other words or phrases. For example, I googled words related to dragon and found this page. I like cerberic (dragon-like) and Typhoeus (the son of Gaea and Tartarus who had a hundred dragon heads, which spurted fire, and a bellowing many-tongued voice. He created the whirlwinds… [from Collins English Dictionary]).

I also found the Phrontistery, an alphabetical listing of obscure words and their meanings. I like cacodoxy, bad belief or wrong opinion, and xenial, being hospitable to guests.
