I is for Ichthyic
Ichthyic just means "like a fish". It derives from the ancient Greek word ikhthus meaning, well, a fish. The word piscine, derived from the Latin, means the same thing but, let's face it, just doesn't sound as good.
I like the word's rhythm and shape, but I also like it because it's almost impossible to spell properly first time. Or is that just me?
It's also another good Lovecraftian word. They seem to keep cropping up in these posts ...
