Words I Don't Know: 'N'

I combed the "N" section of the pocket-sized dictionary I owned, trying to cull the words that to this point in my life had eluded me. This was all I came up with:

neonate: a baby four weeks or younger.

That's it. That's everything.

Now, on the other hand there are plenty of words that I like such as nefarious and nepotism. Got any favorites from the letter "N"?

Niece is a lovely word, but not one that I have the privilege of using as of yet for myself. Nephews, on the other hand! : )

How about narcolepsy? That's a weird disorder as well as a cool word.

I know someone who fell asleep while waiting for his brother.
Strangely he was actually straddling a motor bike whilst parked at the side of the main road at the time.
The man could sleepfor England!.

Nieces and nepotism just seem to go together. Nonetheless, no narcoleptic nancy-boy is a nephew of mine.

I'm nutters about nuggies, and I can natter on to nearly next week about Noir, nog, nosh or Nessie.
