I was shocked, yea, shocked, when I read today Lord Northcliffe Professor Emeritus John Sutherland using the rebarbative hybrid, “caninophile”. If you must, it’s “cynophile”, as in cynosure.
Even my US cat calendar tells me that a cat-lover is an ailurophile (and not a felixophile or some such)
“Television” was bad enough . . .
Miss Prism. You are too much alone, dear Dr. Chasuble. You should get married. A misanthrope I can understand—a womanthrope, never!
Chasuble. [With a scholar’s shudder.] Believe me, I do not deserve so neologistic a phrase.
