inacceptable - Pronounced with the accent on the second syllable instead of the third. Unacceptable. Now considered a misspelling -- "It's not acceptable as an everyday variant of 'unacceptable.'" -- it was once used regularly in foreign policy, international relations, psychology, and science.

inadaksen - (rhymes with "line a lock sen"; negative) 1. "No! No! A thousand times NO!" 2. "Never! Never!" 3. "In your dreams." [from the German einundachtzig "eighty one" (horribly mispronounced and -spelled). The reason for this usage appears to be that 81 is 9x9, and the word "nine" in English sounds the same as the word "no" in German: "nein." Hence, 81 means NO times NO.]

e.g., "Tell me where the radio is hidden!" "Nein! Nein!" "For the last time: where is the radio?!---tell me, or face the Gestapo's legendary hospitality!" "Inadaksen!"

incite - Insight. | "To stir, encourage, or urge on; stimulate or prompt to action. . . ." Insight -- "an instance of apprehending the true nature of a thing, especially through intuitive understanding. . . ." In the example, "insighting" has been used where the correct word should be "inciting." Note: there's no such word as "insighting" -- and I'm not about to add one here. Given such absurd misuses of words, the person quoted in the second example is underestimating how egregiously a hate crimes statute may be misused.

e.g., "And I'm also skeptical that the Army's 'pogue' is related to the Marine's 'pogey bait.' Does anyone have any incite?" | "It IS irrational to feel like there is 'something at stake.' Even at 'secular' colleges where speech is controlled, religious speech has the widest berth: it mainly tackles vulgarity, rudeness, and insighting (mob) language."

incumbentcy - How the word incumbent should be spelled. Suggested by a ytpo in my previous entry. A google search shows that the word appears on the Internet ~250 times. Exmples are taken from the Internet.

It appears that even "learned" folks aren't necessarily good spellers. On the other hand, based on the time in history some of the examples were written, it may well be that incumbentcy was once the correct or preferred spelling, but eventually gave way to incumbency. If that were the case, though, shouldn't a reference to the change in spelling have turned up?

    The inability of the NRCC to recruit Joe Negron into the race (the inability to recruit the top candidates is becoming something of a trend for them), the advantage of incumbentcy, Mahoney's fundraising prowess, and the fact that the seat isn't all that Republican. The seat also has a very difficult geography, snaking all the way across the state, covering multiple media markets, and generally making it very difficult to campaign in.

    Yes, Bush won 56% of the vote, but ultimately, that's not so much of a landslide that we should be surprised that a Democrat would hold it. Is is a Republican advantage? Yes, but not overwhelmingly. The voters in the 16th are not rapid (sic), right wingers, foaming at the mouth -- they are moderates who consistently re-elected a man (Mark Foley) who was widely known to be gay."

incystence - The condition where a nasty core of stubbornness is embedded in an individual's psyche. The core of stubbornness causes the person to believe that he or she is always right, even well beyond the boundaries of common sense.

e.g., Bob Singley sat across the table from his wife, Sheila. Sheila was having her every day Summer lunch -- a light romaine lettuce salad, two all-wheat crackers, and a glass of iced green tea.  
"What's happened to that shy, sweet, complacent girl I married, almost 40 years ago, who always looked up to me whenever a family decision had to be made?" he mused.  
It started some years ago when Sheila announced, on New Year's Day, that they were buying season's tickets to the local opera's concerts. And they were going to attend every single one.  
"The opera? The goddam opera?" Bob screamed and yelled, pleaded, begged, cajoled, but to no avail. "We're retired. We can afford it. And we are not going to sit home and rot culturally when we're fortunate to have a first class opera group in our town," Sheila replied. So every season since, as much as Bob continued to complain, they've gone to the opera performances . . . every single one.  
Then, a few years ago, Bob made the mistake of coming home from his regular Thursday night poker game with the guys, and telling Sheila that he lost $200. Sheila immediately called all the other wives and they collectively decided that the poker players would not be allowed to take more than $25 dollars to each game. And Sheila had the nerve to check his wallet on Thursday before he went to the game. That action didn't make any sense!  
"We're not going to let our men turn some pleasant entertainment into an expensive obsession," Sheila said firmly.  
The topper came this morning. Sheila announced that she and her three sisters would each take their elderly mother into their homes for three months a year. Bob would have to give up his "Man Cave" in the basement to house her mother for that period of time.  
"Three full months," Bob bellowed (to himself, internally -- he didn't want to face Sheila's extra-steely glare so early in the day). With his luck, Mother would likely be staying over the whole football season!  
Seeing that sour old battle axe every day, facing her frowns and gloomy disposition . . . Bob sat back in his chair with a start. He still loved Sheila, but was she turning into her mother?  
Bob peered intently into Sheila's face. He noticed that a tip of a black, thick hair was emerging from the mole "beauty mark" on her cheek.  
"Hmmm," Bob thought to himself. Was Sheila really affected by progressive incystence, or was she facing . . . horror of horrors, for Bob's future life, expanding testosterone?

infant - Crybaby. Added because of seeing the word "infant" in a comment about a woman suing because a movie didn't live up to her expectations from the trailer. The most memorable mislead for me is from 1972. The trailer for the Charles Bronson western Chato's Land implied it was an action film. As it turned out, all of the action scenes were part of the trailer.  
"I recently bought Seven Years in Tibet for the princely sum of £1 from a 'Bargain DVD bin.' A bargain, I felt at the time.  
"Imagine my outrage when I got home to find the film ended after only 136 minutes, 3,681,505 minutes earlier than the name of the film promised. Needless to say I will be taking legal action against Mandalay Entertainment, who in keeping with their relentless practices of false advertising are NOT in fact based in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, as the name would suggest, but in the United States of America. When will this endless cycle of deceit end?"

infracaninophile - A real word, though seldom or rarely used. says the word was coined by Christopher Morley in 1930. Originally defined as "a defender or champion of the underdog," all definitions I have found mean essentially that. Infracaninophile has no synonyms, but words with broader meanings in a similar vein include champion, fighter, hero, and paladin. It probably wouldn't be too much of a stretch to say that an infracaninophile is someone who stands up for the downtrodden. Given that the word has so little currency, I feel comfortable extending its definition to include that. After all, that's essentially the main reason the pseudodictionary even exists.

Collins English Dictionary: "a person who loves an underdog" | "someone who fights for the underdog." | "a supporter or champion of an underdog" | Grandiloquent Dictionary: "one who supports or defends the underdog" | Luciferous Logolepsy: "champion of the underdog" | Merriam-Webster Online: "underdog lover." | "a defender, supporter, or champion of the underdog." | Worthless Word For The Day: "a person who champions or favors the underdog."

Wikipedia gives an elaboration for the term underdog: "An 'underdog' is a person or group in a competition, usually in sports and creative works, who is popularly expected to dog. In the case where an underdog wins, the outcome is an upset. An 'underdog bet' is a bet on the underdog or outsider for which the odds are generally higher.[2]" Betting on an underdog without getting better odds is seldom a wise thing to do -- don't let your emotions for your favorite player or team override your good sense.

e.g., I'm almost always an infracaninophile when it comes to competitions; however, I was hoping Kentucky would win the NCAA Championship this year and set a new standard with a 40-0 winning season. Alas, that wasn't to be. | It's not at all unusual for infracaninophiles to be incurable.

e.g., Amendment II (1791):

insulanym - (in-SOO-luh-nim; n.) 1. The name given by its indigenes to a particular island as opposed to any political entity established thereon by any aftercomers (explorers, migrating tribes, etc.); 2. The name given by its indigenes to any particular place (island or not) as opposed to the names of countries, counties, provinces, villages, or whatever; 3. A landform's name as opposed to any later labels or lines drawn upon it. [from Latin insula "island" + nym "name," as in "pseudonym."]

e.g., The country called New Zealand occupies the islands called by the Maori "Aotearoa" 'Land of the Long White Cloud.' "Aotearoa" is thus New Zealand's insulanym. Similarly, Japan's northmost island---Hokkaido---was known by its original inhabitants, the Ainu, as "Ezogo," the insulanym. "Taiwan" is the Chinese version of the island's original (or, at least, earlier) inhabitants' name for it; for several centuries, however, it was called "Formosa," after the name given the island by the Portuguese (ilha formosa 'Beautiful Island'). "Taiwan" is thus the proper insulanym for Taiwan. The nation of Cuba sits atop Caobana island, the proper insulanym. The constructed language, Palawa kani (made of bits from the dozen or so languages spoken pre-Europe), calls Tasmania, the Australian island, "Lutriwita," which can serve as its insualnym. Other uses of "insulanym": calling Mt McKinley "Denali" (its original name) or Everest "Chomulongma" or devil's Tower "Matho Thipila." Finally, the western "Middle East," which is covered by Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan, and Syria, is properly called "Canaan" or "Bilād ash-Shām," its Hebrew and Arabic names, respectively.
