Anasaphilia a love of ducks


You won't find "anasophilia" in the dictionary, or even "anasaphilia." Google thinks I might mean "nasophilia" which,
I discover, is a sexual preference for noses. As the owner of a very large nose, I find the thought of closet
nasophiliacs eyeing me lasciviously in the street somewhat frightening. Anasophilia would then mean the absence
of this particular tendency, hopefully a more common condition, but I meant the word to mean a love of ducks. (From
the Greek words for duck and love), so I spell it "anasa-" rather than "anaso-" to avoid any confusion.
