Some new words for your delight, from the list of Words That Don't Exist But Should™:

duogamous /ˈdu.oʊˌɡəməs/, /ˈdju.oʊˌɡəməs/ adj
Polygamous with two partners.
quarryette /ˌkwɒriˈɛt/ n
A small quarry.
pickpocketeer /ˌpɪkpɒkɪtˈɪɹ/ n
Someone who pickpockets; a pickpocket.

The first one I've seen in use on the Internet; the second one is due to moth_wingthane; and the third one popped into the head of yours truly.

I wonder if I'll ever have enough of these for a (short) "Dictionary of Ephemeral Words" or so. :)
