This is intended to be a list of words which are: completely new to me; already well understood albeit uncannily relevant at the time recorded (which time will not be specified); beautiful and strange; foreign language phrases which are deeply meaningful and, for one reason or another, colonized and bittersweetly applied to at least one variety of English; and probably a number of other reasons that are now obscure but at the time will have been deemed painstakingly necessary.
