Neat shirt for sure. I assume that you are getting one of them since it matches your handle.

I may just have to! Would be a great conversation starter when folks who know nothing about pipes see it.

Is this a real word or was it made up but a pipe enthusiast?

That is a really cool shirt there Kap. Understated and classy as far as printed t-shirts go. Maybe I can convince the better half to get one for my upcoming bday. Laughing

I would guess it's created from Greek/Latin base words. One of my student's a while back told me the reason they failed my course was they had Sinistrilogoterraephobia, which if my poor Latin serves me is fear of left-handed geography teachers!

Hey Piet. I'm still here. I just don't spend as much time online during the summer. Being that I live in Syracuse, where we only get a few short months of nice weather, I like to take advantage of it as much as possible! 8/8 bday here. Hope you're doing well down there. Did you catch any World Cup matches? Smile

All 'real words' are 'made up' by somebody, they do not just drop out of the sky. At some point, every word in existence was created by somebody, who first uttered it. In the sciences, new words are created all the time as new discoveries are made or new fields created.

As for the term in question, it was created by a pipe enthusiast some decades back (I do not recall off hand who, but did track it down at one point). Like all good scientific terms, it was created from two Greek roots: the noun for smoke (καπνός; 'kapnůs') and the common suffix for 'study of' (-(o)logy). A 'kapnismologist' is one who engages in the 'study of smoke'.

I would agree, I was just amused (and even a little impressed) by the creativity. It takes some effort to make a statement like that with haiku.

Well, I had to draw the line somewhere (actually, Marx and Engels' Manifesto was pretty darn influential in shaping the history of the 20th century and is a text most students do not ever get the opportunity to read closely unless they are Pol. Sci. or Phil. majors - we had a lot of fun with that one; only Machiavelli's "The Prince" and the Book of Genesis from the Hebrew Bible generated more discussion amongst the students).

Brilliant KAP..... a man of many talents........Which university????college???? When you speak of students..... you must be an academic by trade?
I lecture fine Art at the University of Pretoria RSA......small world bro!!!

Yes, you are correct. There is one other member of this board that I know for sure is also a university faculty member. So that makes at least three of us (there may well be more).

cheers cheers cheers
You Academic types scare me Kap lol!
