Funny 10 Letter Words
Just because you’re looking for high scoring words doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun while doing it. There are ABSOLUTELY some funny 10 letter words you can play, including several 10 letter words starting with A. Over in the world of science, you’ve got AVICULARIA (a species of tarantulas), AARDWOLVES (mammals native to Africa) and AVERMECTIN (a type of pesticide).
And while you might think that ABREACTION may be related to stomach movements, it’s really about reliving an ABOMINABLE experience to purge a repressed emotion. ABROGATING has nothing to do with “bros” ARCHETYPES, but rather about repealing laws and evading responsibility.
Don’t let the letter A have all the fun either. You’ve got a SMATTERING of 10 letter words starting with S like SABRETACHE (a cavalry bag) and SALMAGUNDI (an English salad with meat and cooked vegetables) too. How’s that for a couple of funny 10 letter words? It’s not all SACCHARINE (very sweet) either. Imagine the SCUZZINESS (dirty or unpleasant characteristic) of a SALIENTIAN (type of frog) or a SPUTTERER (a person who sprays saliva or food while talking).
