In response to my post  JUL 27 2000

In response to my post on onomatopoetic words, Neel sent in this wonderful word: abecedarian. It refers to either an alphabet enthusiast or to a list of words in strict alphabetical order (like Apple, Be, Compaq, Dell, &c...), and when you say it, it sounds like you're reciting the beginning of the alphabet. Abecedarian is my new favorite onomatopoetic word.
