Want to impress family and friends with your command of such cool words as "wyliecoat" (a warm undershirt) or "haboob" (a violent sandstorm)? We’ve gathered ten of the strangest words you’ve probably ever heard. Take this little quiz, and for each word, try to guess which definition is the real one. Don’t shy away from the weirdest definitions, as they could be the correct answer!
Where do all of these weird words come from? We found them in a cool little reference book called Mrs. Byrne’s Dictionary of Unusual, Obscure, and Preposterous Words. Though the book is now out of print, your local library may have a copy.
Just one more thing before we begin: If you want to succeed at this little game, stay away from the fimblefamble. (phony answers).
