(Tim, w/thanks to James) If you're a logophile, philologer, or philologue, you might get a kick out of this written by Laurance Urdang and used by the NYT as the final paragraph of his obituary:

This is not a succedaneum for satisfying the nympholepsy of nullifidians. Rather it is hoped that the haecceity of this enchiridion of arcane and recondite sesquipedalian items will appeal to the oniomania of an eximious Gemeinschaft whose legerity and sophrosyne, whose Sprachgefühl and orexis will find more than fugacious fulfillment among its felicific pages.
