I'm sorry, I'm not being lazy, really I'm not.
I just love the fact that there is a word for everything you can possibly imagine, yet we don't know most of them, as we tend to use a painfully truncated vocabulary.
I still remember how wonderful it was to discover that the little plastic bits on the ends of shoe laces were aglets. Yes, tiny little plastic sheaths have a name, a lovely name - say it out loud: "aglets" - doesn't it have exactly the right quality?
Right now I’m excited because there's a word for “the gurgling sounds made by the stomach after eating”.
Now, when your stomach starts to gurgle, be speechless no more! You can casually refer to your gastronomic gurgles as the borborygm aftermath of a delightful meal.[Pronunciation: bor-bê-'rig-êm]
