I don’t normally re-post what BoingBoing has =just= posted, but being a logophile, this one was just too good to pass up.

The New Yorker has an article about the appearance of the word, “esquivalience,” in the second edition of the New Oxford American Dictionary, and the fact that such a word does not exist.
