One of my favorite words is “Myrmidon.” I learned it in one of my favorite movies “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.”

Similar to the word “ bitchmaid,” posted above by Rollover. And yes his picture illustrates the idea.

The best collection of words new to me in the last few years came from reading Salman Rushdie:

 pullulating
 tenebrous
 vakil
 nefandous
 numinous
 revenant (but the recent movie made this more commonly known)
 panjandrum

Watching a vid on 'mountain talk', namely Appalachia/NC hill people and their Scotch-Irish regionalisms.

"airish": a bit chilly; might need a sweater...

I like it.

Nut, most of those are to be found in Patrick O’Brian’s books.
One from his The Mauritius Command:

obnubilate.

It was used in the sense that one obnubilates the brain with
various distillates or other less than salubrious derivations.
