    Camaraderie.
    Love its symbolism, the way it emphasises team work and a sense of belonging and purpose.

    Pettifogger or pettifogging - yes, both are real words and neither are expletitives.

    I quite like the word flunge, but only MTG players will have heard of it and it's probably not in the dictionaries yet.

    My favourite word is destinesia because it happens to me often. It's when you get to where you wanted to go but then forget why you wanted to go there in the first place.
