Interesting and Esoteric Words of the Slate Podcast Literati: Jan. 6, 2010

Latest notable terms from this week’s Slate Culture Gabfest and Slate Political Gabfest (feel free to email me suggestions or leave them in the comments to the main page):

  • objet d’art (DS, CG01-06-10)
  • priapic (SM, CG01-06-10)
  • sartorial (JT, CG01-06-10)
  • satyriasis (SM, CG01-06-10)

The guest host, Adam Gopnik, says “risk adverse” instead of “risk averse.” Tut-tut. A glance through the written word of our pundits (e.g., in the recent Movie Club–which is fantastic, BTW) displays even more fancy words on display.
