    kakorrhaphiophobia – fear of failure.

    I seem to have a soft spot for phobias in this game.

    Good idea Squirrel, but it may be too difficult to work it alphabetically. May I suggest you start a new non-alphabetic thread to accommodate it?

    Squirrel did not actually say misused, he said 'missused' (Mrs-ed) which I take to mean he wants these words to be given wives.
