N Is For Unusual N Words

Hello and welcome to Alphabe Thursdays! I stink posting buttons so here goes my post button

I thought about lots of great "N" words like Noelle and Nick my oldest and youngest children! Nest for birds, Nature for, well, Nature! Nice and Naughty. Nerdy. Nickels. No. Notre Dame. Oh the list goes on. But I know some of you like to learn a little something with some educational value so here goes my choice in unusual "N" words.

noddypeak which means fool; imbecile


noetics which is  laws or rules of logic


nodated  = knotted


nomographer writer of laws


numismatics  study of coins


nummamorous lover of money


nunciative bearing messages



numquid an inquisitive person


nuque nap of the neck


nutrice nurse



nyctalopia night blindness


nyctophobia  fear of the night or darkness

WOW...where did you ever come up with those N words?? Are they part of your every day vocabulary? It was like another language to me. :)

Ha! I think you and I are visiting the same site for cool words...unless you actually knew all those already.

Yea, I suspect you did! You are cool like that!

What a great, informative and nifty "N" stop on my little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "N"!
