A Compilation of Selcouth Words

Victor has written me the following vocabulary sentences. I have italicized the actual vocabulary words.

1. Caustic remarks are rarely delivered with great lamprophony.
2. Samantha suggested limerence, but none of her classmates complied with her.
3. Nihilarians are, sadly, rarely shown any cordiality.
4. The pronk, unfit for any other job, became a mungo and drove his truck to a knoll.
5. The placid, mesonoxian air was a great spot for some phenakism.
6. Pulveratricious clothes are hardly a sign of refinement.
7. When leaders are smug, it often leads to zabernism.
9. Holding onto an erinaceous animal would stifle anyone's laughter!
10. Despite everyone's floccinaucinihilipilification of his sword, he whet it dutifully.

P.S. I wish upon all All Blacks fans a light tyrotoxism. This is a late number eight.
P.P.S. How many of these words do you know?
P.P.P.S. He whet his desire for reading after learning several new words.

No words can describe the pleasure of a student going beyond and above expectations.
