Fromundow

The Fromundow style was a form of architecture that was fashionable in Germany for about three weeks in the late 19th century. It's generally agreed that the reason for its short-lived popularity was due to the fact that the front door of houses and other structures was located on the roof of the building, which proved to be quite impractical.

xenomonologic

Actually is derived from an English word cryoxenomonologic. It means to cry over a person who is a stranger to himself. The word xenomonologic is one that is singular meaning to to be a staranger to himself. This leads one to believe that a xenomonologic person is an alzheimers patient.
