Not so new, but man, did I miss that word by unabridgedbookstore

David Foster Wallace may no longer be with us, BUT, his words, thankfully, will continue to whip us into a frenzy of bibliophile mania. This site picks one of DFW’s chosen words that hardly continue to be in the current lexicon, and explains the meaning, AND (the best part) reproduces the passage the word was found.

Though no longer updated on a regular basis, the person is looking for someone to take the reins. Could that person be you? You know you love DFW that much. Who doesn’t? I mean, it only took me 2 years to get through Infinite Jest. It was about a video tape, right? Tennis? I remember pot.

Go. Learn some vocab. We’ll have a test next friday.

Eesh if it took you two years I am totally afraid of how long it will take me. I’ll just make it a lifetime goal.
