I like that one!

Premiate:

1. to grant a prize or an award to.


We believe that it is more desirable to premiate thrift than to premiate strikes.
, "Address by Dr. Talcott Williams," Year Book of the Economic Club of New York, Volume III, 1913




I seemed to be looking down from an immense height upon a twilit grotto, knee-deep with filth, where a white-bearded daemon swineherd drove about with his staff a flock of fungous, flabby beasts whose appearance filled me with unutterable loathing.

Just keep writing and the good stuff will come.

gulosity

"Gulosity is a rare word for gluttony that sees only occasional use in English these days. It derives via Middle English and Anglo-French from the Latin adjective gulosus ('gluttonous') and ultimately from the noun 'gula' ('gullet')."

Polymath. This is a person of wide-ranging knowledge or learning.

For example, Leonardo da Vinci. Therefore, I will tolerate and maybe even like this word even though it has "math" in it. :smilegrin:
