goniolatry

Another Pynchon invention. Nadando 20:30, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

  • The word is ‘valid’ in the sense of formed according to existing bases. Anyway, I've copied the quote to the gonio- page, since I doubt there are three citations of this. Ƿidsiþ 16:20, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
Can't it pass by being a nonce word in a well-known work? Pynchon is important. Equinox 14:57, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

goniolatry

I couldn't find anything on Google Books or Usenet besides the one citation in the entry. Google Scholar does have one paper by M Cornis-Pope, but it just quotes Pynchon: "To the Cartesian sense of spacial order (the “Ortholatry” and “Goniolatry” of classical surveying), Captain Shelby opposes a metamorphic “polygony” defined “by as many of these exhilarating Instrumental Sweeps, as possible”". - -sche (discuss) 09:51, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Archiver note: previously, this met WT:ATTEST and thus would not have failed RFV; things changed in Wiktionary:Votes/pl-2014-03/CFI: Removing usage in a well-known work 3. --Dan Polansky (talk) 07:10, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
