I have a new favourite (english) word:

chthononosology - The geography of diseases

I recently discovered that the EPFL is subscribed to the Oxford English Dictionary. The OED is a delightful procrastination resource - the entries are much more detailed than the free Merriam-Webster.  Also, the M-W does not know chthononosology, and what kind of dictionary does that make of it, I ask you?
