One Word Substitution Unique & The Most Helpful. OWS Part 34

In the realm of language proficiency assessments, mastering one word substitution (OWS) is pivotal, especially when preparing for exams such as the SSC, including the prestigious SSC CGL. From the foundational stages, like Class 3, students begin encountering these exercises, where a single word stands in for more complex concepts. As learners progress, they compile a growing list of one word substitutions to enhance their command over English. Examples of these one word substitutes abound, with terms like ‘cynosure’ highlighting the focal point and ‘ephemeral’ encapsulating fleeting moments. These exercises are not only integral for exams but also for broader linguistic proficiency in everyday English one word substitution scenarios. Embracing these substitutes provides an easy yet effective way to navigate the intricacies of language, ensuring a solid foundation for success in language assessments.

3301 GASTRONOMY the art and science of cooking and eating good food Tea is an obsession every bit as internecine as any in gastronomy, and for those bitten by the bug, the stale bag on a string won’t hold water. One of the key judging categories was “Productos,” with an asterisked explanation that this meant we were to judge the use of “products and ingredients typical of Spanish gastronomy.”
3302 GENOPHOBIA OR COITOPHOBIA physical or psychological fear of sexual relations or sexual intercourse    
3303 GRAMINIVOROUS (of an animal) feeding on grass Sometimes the Seneca ate half a dozen squabs at a time, necks tied together in a carnivorous sculpture. The trees were carnivorous too, but at a much lower level of acidity, safe enough to stay in for the night while the rest of the island seethed.
3304 GRANARY  a place for grains Their granary was never more than half full and they wore very shabby clothes. “These are the counts from three turns ago,” Marsh told Jon, offering him a thick sheaf of papers, “for comparison with our present stores. Shall we start with the granaries?”
3305 HANGER a large building in an airport in which aircraft are kept “You’ve been ignoring me,” she claims as she tosses my coat into the closet, not bothering to put it on a hanger. I handed out my suits on hangers, my shoes in the game pocket of a hunting coat, and my shirts in their neat wrapping of New England road maps.
3306 HAVEN a safe or peaceful place This house had been a haven then, and in spite of the cold anger she felt now, it still looked like an inn, a safe harbor. There was shoving and jostling as if this were the ultimate haven, the gateway to life.
3307 HISTRIONICS very emotional and energetic, but not sincere or without real meaning I begin to see how the line is crossed, between histrionics and murder. One observer noted that “the veteran of legal battles does not go in for fireworks or courtroom histrionics but he makes his points all the stronger for his quiet reserve.”
3308 HOLSTER a leather holder for a pistol His gun belt was looped under his arm and ’round his neck, with the holster and pistol hanging behind him on his back. Ayanna slipped her staff out of its holster”at some point the Ridge guards had returned her weapon/rudder to her.
3309 HYPOCRITICAL the pretense of virtue or goodness, saying one thing while thinking another I am a creation of the Northern white man and of his hypocritical attitude toward the Negro. I said that on the American racial level, we had to approach the black man’s struggle against the white man’s racism as a human problem, that we had to forget hypocritical politics and propaganda.
3310 IDEALISM the practice of forming and following ideals In this Attic roughneck polity, you can think of Plato”with his radical idealism, intellectual rigidity, and hatred of the mob” as a sort of ancient precursor to Conservative MP Enoch Powell. “My mind shot back a decade,” he later recalled, “to that day we had marched into Vietnam, swaggering, confident, and full of idealism.”
3311 IGLOO the house of an eskimo From where I was curled up in my igloo I could just see his work boots. The dome was missing half its top and looked a little like an igloo after a week of warm weather.
3312 IGNORAMUS a thoroughly ignorant person “There’s no risk you’d be raising a little generation of ignoramuses?” “The elders decided it was time. There are all kinds of silly rumors about Abba evacuating soon. Some ignoramuses even say the federal troops have entered Awka!”
3313 IMMEMORIAL too old to be remembered, ancient, beyond memory Merchants had been making and losing money since time immemorial. Not only have you been lucky enough to be attached since time immemorial to a favored evolutionary line, but you have also been extremely”“make that miraculously”“fortunate in your personal ancestry.
3314 INAUSPICIOUS not of good omen The amounts are for one hundred and one dollars, two hundred and one dollars, occasionally three hundred and one dollars, as Bengalis consider it inauspicious to give round figures. “They wouldn’t want you to marry a widow; such a marriage is inauspicious. And you own land. You would have no trouble finding a wife who would bring you a dowry.”
3315 INCOGNITO having one’s true identity concealed “You know all about private browsers, going incognito, deleting your history, and doing whatever you need to do to hide where you’ve been the instant your father or I appear.” Now that he’d grown a beard, most people didn’t recognize him, and he recaptured the peace and incognito of his earlier trips.
3316 INDOPHILE an admirer of the indian people, its culture, manners or way of life Indeed, the child had always been wayward and strange, and especially indocile to Edith’s instructions, although she seemed at times to have a strong affection for her. On these front seats sat the gay and indocile Belgian girls.
3317 INDOPHOBE one who dislikes the indians and india A day felt like a lengthy endeavor; a year, unfathomably long. “Flay,” I whispered, but they would not; their attentions were absorbed in my endeavor, as if they knew what was to come, and wished particularly to witness it.
3318 INFANTRY soldiers marching or fighting on foot There was no rush to get into the fighting; no one seemed to feel the need to get into the infantry, and only a few were talking about the Marines. At seven that last night, our whole group was scheduled to entrain for London, where, as rumor had it, we were to be assigned to infantry and airborne divisions mustered for the D Day landings.
3319 INGENIOUS very clever person A situation had now been reached in which whoever threw the next hit had to earn general approval by being ingenious or funny. As the onlookers scrutinized the position, Bobby’s ploy became obvious to all: Although not profound, it was cunning, perhaps ingenious, and even brilliant.
3320 INNATE that which one is born with It seems logical to suppose that history’s pattern reflects innate differences among people themselves. I must admit that my body moved with surprising agility; I am not without an innate sense of rhythm; my ancestors must have been rather outstanding at jigging on the heath.
3321 INSOLVENT a person who is unable to pay his debts On Friday evening, October 14, 1983, at 6: 13 P.M., the First National Bank was declared insolvent by the Comptroller of the Currency. And if your travel company is insolvent, don’t delay.
3322 INTELLECTUAL a person of good understanding, knowledge and reasoning power Indeed, much of Newton’s intellectual development can be attributed to this tension between rationalism and mysticism. As his hagiographers tell the story, Kim II Sung’s most important intellectual achievement”his brilliant juche idea”asserts that national pride goes hand in glove with self-reliance.
3323 JAYWALK to cross streets on foot in a careless and dangerous way This is followed closely by the memory of my mother telling me crossing the street anywhere but the crosswalk is a crime called jaywalking. Driving past, my dad used to roll his eyes at the flocks of students haplessly jaywalking across Ellis Avenue, wondering how it was that such smart people had never learned to properly cross a street.
3324 JOEY a young kangaroo In their pouches, instead of cement joeys, they had cigarette stubs, used matchsticks, bottle caps, peanut shells, crumpled paper cups and cockroaches. Also, koala joeys prepare to leave their mothers for the very first time in this new episode of the documentary series.
3325 KIMONO a loose gown of silk as worn in japan “I was going to leave this! In case you had rice I could take. I wasn’t going to steal; I would leave you the kimono. It’s worth a lot.” For ten years or more, both of her daughters had often, if impotently, conspired to throw out this veteran kimono.
3326 LAPIDIST a skilled worker who cuts and engraves precious stones His hand was resting upon the table, and a diamond of great beauty glittered upon his finger”as the lapidists say, it “gave fire.” Pallet jewels had to be made, and lapidists have usually poor ideas of close measurements.
3327 LEGIBLE that which can be read I want a diary with her thoughts laid out in legible ink. “There! you will find it scarcely more legible than a crumpled, scratched page. Read on: only make haste, for I suffer.”
3328 LIBERTARIAN one who believes that one should have freedom of expression “Being an independent journalist is a hobby that sprang from my frustration about biased, incomplete, selective, and/or incompetent information gathering by the mainstream media,” explained Ardolino, who describes himself as a “center-right libertarian.” Politically, they were conservative, closer to libertarian than liberal.
3329 LOWBROW not highly intellectual or cultured Eliminating those unfamiliar with the Stooges’ slapstick, physical, lowbrow comedy, I found that an overwhelming 8 percent of my sample admitted to such an indulgence. Restaurateurs recognized the market for upscale takes on lowbrow food.
3330 MAGNUM OPUS a great work of art, particularly literary “The point is, she is your magnum opus. Only a Pellinore can catch her. You have told us so often.” Copernicus published his magnum opus on his deathbed”in 1543, just before the church started clamping down on new ideas.
3331 MAIDEN SPEECH the first speech delivered by a person And now comes the blend of the maiden pink and the sunlight gold. Until the purple ling and loosestrife, gave place to mint and maiden pink and late meadow-sweet; and then the hop vine and meadow saffron proclaimed that summer was over.
3332 MALEDICTION a curse or words or speech intended to bring about destruction or evil. I talked straight through the night, and he silently took my confes sions, maledictions, as though he were some font of blessing at which I might leave a final belated tithe. They dug up the front yard for buried maledictions but found nothing.
3333 MASOCHIST one who enjoys pain or humiliation “You’re an overt masochist. Nice treatment will confuse and destroy you.” I found no listing for those who fear they know too many masochists.
3334 MATRICIDE  murder of mother In 458 BC, a few decades after Pythagoras’s death, the playwright Aeschylus used this odd logic to provide one of history’s most extraordinary legal defenses of matricide. They would have liked to ask why he was going to forgive his nephews, or to protest that it was impossible to pardon matricides without damaging the Round Table.
3335 MISOLOGIST one who hates reasoning,  learning and knowledge “Come on in, folks, and enjoy a good drink made by our expert mixologists to your exact specifications.” The first is the overwhelming smell; an olfactory mixologist might describe it as sour, almost chemical, with overtones of formaldehyde and must.
3336 MONOGAMY   the practice of marrying one at a time Many scholars vehemently reject this theory, insisting that both monogamy and the forming of nuclear families are core human behaviours. “My love, my one and only, precious, precious . . .” Mother, monogamy, romance.
3337 NAMESAKE  a person having the same name as another Of that lean and terrible red ship he saw no sign, but his father’s Great Kraken was there, her bow ornamented with a grey iron ram in the shape of its namesake. “Thy namesake tamed the desert and sweetened the minds of thy people, didst thou know that? It is in the books.”
3338 NAUSEA a strong feeling of wanting to vomit Waves of nausea prevent me from eating anything but saltines and ginger ale. The boys stood there in wonder and nausea, before just such a stronghold.
3339 ONTOLOGY philosophy concerned with the nature of existence These were the great, complex questions of ontology that tormented him. Furthermore, if there is a crisis of modernity, it encompasses not just ontology but also aesthetics.
3340 OPTOMETRIST a technician who measures your eyesight A short time later, an optometrist examined my eyes and studied the spots on my blouse. I pulled into an optometrist’s parking lot, took off the Band-Aid, and looked at the wound.
3341 PARIAH one who is not accepted by society; an outcast Who becomes a social pariah and excommunicated from civil society and who trots off to college bears scant relationship to the morality of crimes committed. “I don’t see why you have to make a pariah out of me just because that disagreeable little chippy flew the coop,” said Snowbell, irritably.
3342 PAUNCH a man’s fat stomach He let the paunch of his belly sag over his folded legs. He patted his slight paunch; he flexed his trembling, nicotine-stained hands.
3343 PEDANT one who is overly concerned with book-learning or with formal rules You may have been told by some pedant that over doesn’t apply to numbers, only to quantities. A sort of intellectual warmth, the joy of the pedant who has found out some useless fact, shone through the dirt and scrubby hair.
3344 PERQUISITE a benefit which one enjoys or is entitled to on account of one’s job or position. Those engaged in the development and manufacture of weapons of mass destruction are given salaries, perquisites of power and, where possible, public honors at the highest levels available in their respective societies. There were perquisites, apart from the thrill of shaming a man in front of his family or roughing up an unseasoned buck who squinted at you the wrong way.
3345 POLYGAMIST a man who has more than one wife at the same time “In this community, polygamists are breaking the law, even if they have married in the presence of a judge, with the statement of “I do’ and the signed document in their own hand. The state, meanwhile, has publicly said it won’t prosecute consenting adult polygamists unless there are other crimes involved, but insists the law doesn’t overreach.
3346 PORTAL an impressive entrance to a building A bare minimum of bulbs lit the space, casting long shadows and making the alcoves seem like portals to undisclosed hells. The portal the stranger had come through blinked away, leaving undisturbed air and sky in its place.
3347 PRESCIENT able to foretell what will happen in the future It was a prescient question, for Frank Oppenheimer’s association with Lawrence’s lab would end abruptly, following the disclosure of his earlier membership in the Communist Party. Some prescient part of him saw the two paths diverging in the yellow wood.
3348 PROFILE a brief description of the characteristics of something or someone I assumed that a big part of his mission was to attract higher-quality students to Rider in order to elevate its profile and reputation, but his attitude toward Truman actually angered me. “We only put up her profile last night.”
3349 PROGNOSTICATION the action of prophesying future events King Pellet had gone to the library to work out some prognostications, and his guest was left gloomily in the hall. Royal Brougham, despite his earlier gloomy assessment, had already announced his personal prognostication: Washington to win, Cornell in second, California third.
3350 PROPELLANT an explosive for firing a bullet or a rocket “I figured out our clues. Ammonium nitrate. It’s used in fertilizers, explosives, and rocket propellants.” “Specific impulse is defined as the thrust in pounds of a given propellant divided by its consumption rate.”
3351 PSYCHIATRY study and treatment of mental illness When he was advised that he had no avocation, he left the island, came to America to study the then budding field of psychiatry. Sigmund Freud, the founder of modern psychiatry, conceived of art primarily in terms of sublimation outside of consciousness.
3352 RECEPTIVE capable of receiving new ideas We are all familiar with the supposed generalization that rural Third World societies are less receptive to innovation than are Westernized industrial societies. “I was telling the boy that according to Plato, man is delined,” he said, smiling affably and gesturing to the cart, “as a featherless biped with broad nails, receptive of political philosophy.”
3353 REFLATION a government policy of increasing the amount of money in circulation Haefele added that the main driver of the markets in the second half of 2022 will be investor perceptions of whether we are headed for stagflation, reflation, a soft-landing, or a slump. Such an increase could stoke speculation that global inflation will prove longer-lasting than first hoped and hasten the end of super-cheap money, favouring reflation trades in bank and energy stocks while bruising bond prices.
3354 REINFORCE strengthen by additional men or material It was substantially reinforced when the religion became legal and was openly practised following the Edict of Milan in ad 313. This can reinforce our goals “alerting us to important information”but also capture our attention even when we don’t want it to, even when it’s dangerous, like when we’re behind the wheel.
3355 RHETORIC  the art of elegant speech or writing It wasn’t the abusive rhetoric, the blatant xenophobia. A professor of rhetoric at Bowdoin College, sometimes professor of “Natural and Revealed Religion,” successor to the chair of the famed Professor Stowe, husband to Harriet Beecher.
3356 RINGLEADER one who leads others to do wrong or make trouble I’m not trying to be a ringleader or anything, but if I hadn’t started this whole thing, we wouldn’t be in this boat. The State has not been looking for a third person, a ringleader for this crime, because I think they recognize that this person doesn’t exist.”
3357 SANCTIMONIOUS making a show of being morally superior to other people The Morning Herald, sanctimonious as ever, editorialized: There is a proper course in protesting substandard housing, and Operation Breakthrough would have been well advised to have counseled the Edgemont Community Council to follow it. Let every last one of them glean themselves, and we can be done with their self-loathing, sanctimonious ways.
3358 SCAFFOLD a structure on which criminals used to be hanged With a grunt of disgust, Mr. Weiss scooped the lead blocks from their scaffold and threw them into the melting pot. Then I sit down on the edge of my bed and pull up the screenshot I’d taken earlier of the dome’s scaffolding.
3359 SCEPTIC a person who doubts the truth of what he is told No sooner had a genre called verbatim drama been identified than sceptics appeared arguing that it was somehow unacceptable to copy dialogue down, rather than to make it up. He was a sceptic in the proper sense of the word, before it was appropriated by xenophobes: sceptical about the lack of democracy that was so evident in the project of European integration.
3360 SCUBA an instrument used for breathing when swimming underwater He comes up sputtering and shivering, even though he’s wearing a wet suit and scuba goggles, while Sami dances around him and trash-talks. The next thing I knew, the camera people were filming her in scuba gear, flipping backward off the side of the boat.
3361 SEER one who can see into the future To his amazement and indignation the seer at first refused to answer. “I want to know about the future because I’m a man,” the camel driver had said to the seer.
3362 SENSATIONALISM the intentional production of excitement or shock He wanted to play the game of chess, not be a party to sensationalism. Clever, extremely industrious, he talked loudly and rapidly with a Bronx accent and was proud of his bent for sensationalism.
3363 SIMULTANEOUSLY taking place or happening at the same time A garden is thus both natural and artificial, and it is both of these things entirely and simultaneously. For example, hunter-gatherers in parts of southeastern Europe had quickly adopted Southwest Asian cereal crops, pulse crops, and livestock simultaneously as a complete package by around 6000 B.C.
3364 SINOPHILE an admirer of the chinese people, language, manners or way of life Those whose fables and metaphors, whose similes, and soliloquies, whose diction and je ne sais quoi daily slip into your survival soup, by way of their fingers. “Weathercock can without the wind,” suggested Jo, as he paused for a simile.
3365 SINOPHOBE one who dislikes the chinese and china The whole thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed. Since the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, steel companies had incited this xenophobia and painted strikers as wanting to overthrow the government.
3366 SMALL FRY unimportant people The arrests netted only a few small fry, but the Nazis now knew that their codes had been broken. In those bygone days a bishop visited the Milagro parish about once every five years, and when the bishop came he confirmed all the small fry in town.
3367 SOMNAMBULISM walking in sleep Her strange somnambulism seemed suspicious to her, as did her new mania for taking food to her room. This brutal satirical novel takes place on a single night, when a plague of somnambulism unleashes a host of suppressed emotions among the inhabitants of a Chinese village.
3368 SORCERER a person who claims or is believed to have magic powers; a wizard “O Jewel among sorcerers, O Gem of Havnor, sparkle for us!” This man was the Villac Uma, the head priest and highest sorcerer of the entire empire?
3369 SORORICIDE  the killing of one’s sister Elephant shrews used to be considered members of the Soricidae family, to which true shrews belong. Nothing seems to be known of the Pleistocene Soricidae of México.
3370 STAMPEDE a sudden rush of a large number of frightened people or animals She ignored Polybotes, who was now stampeding around her, trying to swat Jason out of his whirlwind. He told Dad and the other guides that he’d inherited some money from a rich uncle who’d died in an elephant stampede in Africa.
3371 STATESMAN a political leader who tries to stir up people A. without a single pretension to the character of a soldier, a perfect Quixote as a statesman. Here is a distinguished statesman with presidential possibilities; I shall proceed to fall in love with him.’
3372 STOPOVER a short stay between two places in one’s journey Tuxedo Park became an obligatory stopover for eminent scientists visiting the United States. On a Bangkok stopover en route to Manila, he’d bought a number of Thai music cassettes, which he played over and over again at night while he was going over games.
3373 STRINGENT very strict Until the War on Drugs, courts had been fairly stringent about enforcing the Fourth Amendment’s requirements. I should suffer often, no doubt, attached to him only in this capacity: my body would be under rather a stringent yoke, but my heart and mind would be free.
3374 SUBVERSIVE attempting to weaken or overthrow the authority For a long time there had been rumours”circulated, he had reason to think, by some malignant enemy”that there was something subversive and even revolutionary in the outlook of himself and his colleagues. We immediately took the paper and wreath to the police station, along with information as to what obviously subversive family had discarded the offending decoration.
3375 SURREAL having a strange, dreamlike unreal quality I was alone, isolated in a bubble of resistance, watching this surreal scene magnified beyond comprehension. But even that thought struck her as slightly surreal.
3376 TECHNOCRAT a specialist in technology Instead of cars, we would become manufacturers of hamburger platters and Greek salads, industrialists of spanakopita and grilled cheese sandwiches, technocrats of rice pudding and banana cream pie. The third is the sagely or clerical-intellectual caste, dating from the days of the monks in medieval Christian society and finding its present-day embodiment in the bureaucrat, the technocrat and the expert.
3377 TIMBER wood cut down for building etc. Under its multiplied roar could be heard a mighty sound of grinding rock and timber and a wail. Workers laid foundations of immense timbers in crisscrossed layers in accord with Root’s grillage principle, then used steam-powered derricks to raise the tall posts of iron and steel that formed each building’s frame.
3378 TRIENNIAL  an event which happens once in three years It was an invitation to the Solvay Conference, an elite triennial international convocation in Brussels, Belgium. For the triennial, she scoured the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam for posters and leaflets across the political spectrum, focusing on repetitive imagery of fighting warriors and animals.
3379 TYRANT a ruler with complete power who rules cruelly Do you want a bloodthirsty tyrant to know you’re about to land bang on his doorstep? “I don’t know what to think. One minute he’s a tyrant, the next minute he’s kind and gentle. I don’t know what to think.”
3380 UNISEX of one type, used by both males and females The only unisex singular pronoun we have is it, which doesn’t always fill the bill. “Okay, so nowadays the hairstyles are a little bit shorter. I think, good, maybe I can make a living. But no. Now everyone wants to go unisex. They want to be shampooed.”
3381 UPSTART a person who has suddenly risen from low rank to wealth and importance She says to Miss Barry, I hear a certain upstart from the lanes walked away from the post office exam. This upstart chief was ruining my day, spoiling the proud feeling with wrongheaded remarks.
3382 VENTRILOQUIST one who entertains people by speaking without moving the lips and making it feel that the words are spoken by a model of a person I’m not a ventriloquist and Natalie isn’t my dummy, but today I want her mute. I turned my head and talked sideways out of my mouth like one of those ventriloquists.
3383 VEXILLOLOGY the study of flags Hence we derive a light as to what animals may have existed at particular times, which is in some measure independent of the specialties of fossilology.  
3384 AMBIVALENT having opposing feelings But by the time we were ten, we’d grown more ambivalent about it. Initially he had been ambivalent about whether Chicago should even seek the world’s fair.
3385 MULTILINGUAL a person who speak many languages They married and raised two daughters, both of whom were enrolled in a Pyongyang school that trained multilingual spies. States, though”especially so-called empires formed by amalgamation or conquest of states”are regularly multiethnic and multilingual.
3386 POSTHUMAS a book published after the death of its author The Hamiltonian story required a distortion in the sequence of the exchange in order to preserve Hamilton’s posthumous reputation. He didn’t want to leave this world for some posthumous glory.
3387 ABLUTOPHOBIA fear of bathing Alfred Hitchcock was afraid of eggs; Julius Caesar, Napoleon and Alexander the Great were all afraid of cats ” ailurophobia. The unaccountable fear of dogs is not so common as ailurophobia, although it is said that De Musset cordially detested them, and Goethe despised them, notwithstanding, forsooth, he kept a tame snake.
3388 ACHLUOPHOBIA  fear of darkness “Did I ever tell you I have acrophobia?” If you’ve got a little problem with acrophobia ” a fear of heights ” think twice about taking in the 3-D, computer-animated “Mars Needs Moms.”
3389 AICHMOPHOBIA fear of needles or pointed objects “Did I ever tell you I have acrophobia?” If you’ve got a little problem with acrophobia ” a fear of heights ” think twice about taking in the 3-D, computer-animated “Mars Needs Moms.”
3390 ANEMOPHOBIA fear of air An even more challenging and creative way to use body percussion is to create onomatopoeia in accordance with the lyrics, mimicking or relating to the sounds presented in the rhyme. Then, with an amusement that did not try to shield its underlying seriousness, she added, “My niece goes to a school on the mainland and at age six she could spell “onomatopoeia’!”
3391 ANGINOPHOBIA fear of angina or choking Jefferson’s Anglophobia was more virulent in part because it was more theoretical, a moral conclusion that followed naturally from the moralistic categories he carried around in his head. But it was precisely that sense of security which steered him away from name-calling Anglophobia or from joining the militant end of Irish Republicanism.
3392 ANGROPHOBIA fear of anger    
3393 ANTHROPHOBIA fear of flowers    
3394 APHENPHOSMPHOBIA fear of being touched Maybe it’s my entomophobia talking, but in a movie about dinosaurs, it’s funny that it takes a swarm of oversize insects to induce even the mildest case of the shivers. Some are people afflicted with entomophobia ” a dread of all insects.
3395 ARACHIBUTYROPHOBIA  fear of peanut butter    
3396 ARACHNOPHOBIA fear of spiders It’s not as if she had arachnophobia, she explained. The wide range of subjects in this collection includes Jeffrey Dahmer, a cruise to Antarctica, the dedicated wives of famous intellectuals and arachnophobia.
3397 ARITHMOPHOBIA fear of numbers Maybe it’s my entomophobia talking, but in a movie about dinosaurs, it’s funny that it takes a swarm of oversize insects to induce even the mildest case of the shivers. Some are people afflicted with entomophobia ” a dread of all insects.
3398 ASTRAPHOBIA fear of thunder and lightning    
3399 ASTROPHOBIA fear of outer space    
3400 ATAXOPHOBIA fear of disorder or untidiness
