A-Z of unusual words

projecttwins_z-214x300.jpgAn interesting project by The Project Twins showcases an alphabet of unusual words.

Originally exhibited last year in Dublin, the prints are visual interpretations of words such as acersecomic (a person whose hair has never been cut) and cacodemonomania (the pathological belief that one is inhabited by an evil spirit).

One of my favourite words is zugzwang, which means “a position in which any decision or move will result in problems” (pictured). You can buy prints at the Twins’ shop.
