Great list. But why do you list "bun-fight" and "bunfight" Is there a difference? (Apart from one having a hyphen and the other not.) :hug:
Hyphens are so important, don't you think? :flasher[1]:

Why is no one asking why the list started with an h word?C
Is it a silent aitch?The hood comes first?It's some form of ancient Druid Halphabet?Englishmen like to keep their hoods up front?It's Camy's favourite?He misspelled Advocaat? :flasher[1]:

Why pixilated and not pixy? That sounds like sheer caprice to me, or else rampant discrimination against fairies.I love the word pixy.C
Pixy is now in, and Sour-Apple-Squirts, too. :flasher[1]:

My funky word:Abandon, meaning either1) to leave something alone without protection, or2) wild in unconstrained frenzyComes from the French "Abandonner".According to the OED: "Surrender to natural impulses; freedom from constraint or convention"It's one letter away from "Abadon" - Satan.It has no anagrams, though first three letter rearrange to "Baa", and the first two become "ab" - which is either "abdominal muscle" or a latin prefix indicating negation.An "Aba" is "A sleeveless outer garment of various forms, worn by Arabs.", and homonym of a Swedish pop group.In the 16th century literature there was the related word "Aband", with the same meanings.Rhymes with: Pandan (a Malaysaian shrub), Mandan (a Sioux language), Ugandan, Boundan (the limits of a cricket field), and Undern (literally "3'o'clock in the morning" but figuratively "the evening").Collocation: Abandon ship, Abandon hope all ye who enter, Gay abandon
