The Project Twins' A-Z Of Unusual Words With Enticing Graphics (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

We've all heard "A is for 'apple' and B is for 'boy,'" but have you ever heard "A is for 'Acersecomic' and B is for 'Biblioclasm'"? We didn't think so.

If you feel like you have been saying "cool" too much lately, listen up. The Project Twins has provided the ABCs of odd and wonderful vocabulary. Harking back to the early days of flashcards, Twins created visual interpretations to help each strange new word stick.

We found this alternate alphabet on Brain Pickings, and we are obsessed. We found words to make you swoon ('Vernalagnia,' a romantic mood brought on by Spring), words you never knew existed ('Biblioclasm,' the practice of destroying books), and words to make you sound like a pretentious know-it-all ('Pogonotrophy,' the act of growing facial hair).

Can you use one of the words in a sentence? Show us your skills in the comments section.
