cyclopedia - (Also cyclopaedia, if you're old fashioned) (n.) A gathering of cyclopses (or "Cyclopes," if you are (a) a reincarnated, Iron-Age Greek, or (b) a purist. Personally, I have never heard anybody use the plural "cyclopes" for such creatures outside of students of (ancient) Greek or Latin---and even they fail to say it "properly," which would be kuk-lo-pes).

e.g., "So," said Homer, "where were we? ... Oh, yes, Odysseus and the cyclopedia. Today: the 'Nemo' protocol."

cymotrichous - "Curly-headed, having wavy hair." "Occasionally we like to examine a perfectly useless word just to remind us of the boundless richness of the English vocabulary. Today's Good Word is such, an adjective from the noun cymotrichy 'curly-headedness.' It is, of course, the medical term for curly-headed and raises, yet again, the question of why doctors need a discrete and arcane language all to themselves."

e.g., When I was a lad, I was smitten by a certain cymotrichous ladette. | Wow, did you see the cymotrichous dish who just walked in? See you later. I've just gotta try to make headway with her. I'd never forgive myself if I didn't.

submitted by [HD for Robert Beard aka Dr. Goodword] - (www)
