P.S. some of these words I know quite well, i just put them on my personal list for the sheer fun of it. Some of the words I know but would like to know better, like pyrrhic the word for a Greek war dance, naked i hope.

P.P.S I hate it when ppl misuse the word interpolate; it makes me want to interpolate their heads.

I'd love to join-in, however I'm not sure what to do.
What are these words? What do they relate to?
