I just finished a novel that had an unusual number of words that were unfamiliar to me. So I thought I'd see if my friends knew these words. Comments are screened, so you can post definitions without it being a spoiler for others.
One of these is not found in the OED, and is a typo or error; a letter needs to be deleted to produce the intended word (which is used in the book in a sense not listed in the OED, though the intended meaning is clear from context).
For extra credit, can you name the book that contains all these words? It's a fantasy novel from 1981.
borborygmic (this one I had heard before, and remembered the meaning given the context, but it's a great word)
