In Swedish we have a word kalejdoskopisk, which doesn't seem to be available to you English speakers even though it should. It's based on the word kaleidoscope, and is a very fancy way of saying shifting.

Cool to see "penultimate" in your list Joe. It's one of my favorites, as it has two diametrically opposed meanings. As second best, it's a good thing. Like getting an assessment of B. The other is second to the end - or almost the last. Like a D. Often thought to mean "ultimate", it is the epitome of a misunderstood word, as the preformative "pen" is rare.

Penultimate has been ubiquitous in my speech over the previous week, primarily because of the televised media I have recently viewed. The second to last episode of surrealist David Lynch's Twin Peaks aired last weekend. It's a very psychedelic TV show.

As an atheist, personally I'm inclined to think the world would be a better place without most organised religions; thus, I suppose I lean more towards disestablishmentarianism, than antidisestablishmentarianism, but, I can't say I've ever found myself to be discombobulated by the subject.
Cheers,
Brett

Thanks man! I've always said (and possibly written) tenticular. As in, "my dream involved this really hot, albeit tenticular girl". I love that I can spell - and say - it right now!

remarkable that two German words that have made it into English had been listed. I add "Zeitgeist" and, not sure if that really is used in English but would like to know, "Weltanschauung".

and a recent, new word: flexitarian

Expediency ...

One of many words I can never remember when I actually want to use it. Must be getting older, or something.

Timing ...
