For some strange reason, the word "alopecoid" just popped into my head. I think I heard it at a spelling bee or something, and at the time I probably questioned whether it was a real word. It is. It's a synonym for "vulpine," which I'll let you figure out for yourself.

But because I think I'm a little too comprehensible, I've taken a huge interest in the online Dictionary of Difficult Words to proliferate my verbile tendencies and the sesquipedalian end of my vocabulary even as the language is reduced to sigla in the popular culture. Hopefully, someday I'll make English a complete impediment to communication.
