So while I’m waiting for the interview, some random words that popped into my head last night while sleep-deprived:
Cryptoglossia n. Secret speech, conversation in code; e.g. “The blue dog howls at midnight,” or the dialogue of secret in-jokes between lovers.
Eschatolalic adj. n. One who rambles incoherently about the end of the world; the madman on the street shouting that the end is near, or on occasion a politician’s speech.
Ichthyopneia n, infl. form: pl. same as sing. An (intrinsically) nonexistent thing, or a dream-thing; like a box of moonbeams, or a lost city.
…and dammit, I’m really wondering when I’ll get that call back…
