This article inspired me to open this thread. Please list here weird or especially interesting words (in your language or any other language). I can think of several obscure words in (non-Modern) Hebrew that I bet that most of the Hebrew speakers have never heard them before, but nevertheless they are quite weird... תימוז (timoz) - one whose eyelashes have fallen. קיין (kayan) - one whose testicles are big. עקוד ('akod) - an animal which the color of its ankles is different from the color of its fur. I was told once that in Arabic there is a verb that means "buried his alive daughter"
