A Collection of Uncommon Words

If anyone out there has heard an unfamiliar and interesting word they would like to find out more about - please post it here and I will be happy to find out as much info as I can about the word.

For example: who out there knows what a padiddle is? If you have never heard this word before and are curious, please check back tomorrow and I will fill you in.

Also, if you have a fun word that is common to you, but perhaps not to many others, please post that word here with your definition.

How about crepuscular?! I had never heard of it until my brilliant English teacher brought it up. How many other words out there are like that? Sounding awful and meaning things we all thought we just couldn't describe???

Crepuscular is a great word and you are so right that it sounds like it would be something really gross when it simply has to do with twilight which is beautiful and not gross.
