Pseudowords and nonwords
People interested in buying weird domain name for website might be interested in list of pseudowords and nonwords. For the record, a pseudoword is "a unit of speech or text that appears to be an actual word in a certain language (at least superficially), while in fact it is not part of the lexicon. Within linguistics, a pseudoword is defined specifically as respecting the phonotactic restrictions of a language" (according to the Wikipedia). Nonwords go beyond pseudowords "in that they are not pronounceable and by their spelling, which could not be the spelling of a real word. For instance, this list of nonwords:
STIPTSE / ZOORPTH / WOLV / FUIKTZ / GNOEPTZ / THEWMTS / DRASPCE / TIERTSE / NOORTHS / THOINNS /GHRALPS / QUIGHV / GHEABD / SPUIDS / DERPHES / THUIXTS / VOORDTH
And uh, these concepts are not useless (or for domain names), they're used in experimental psychology (as described here). Why do I blog this? I had to explain that concept lately to a friend (my background is in psychology, I have to deal with this stuff for a while before shifting to HCI research).
