Here are some, including two I didn't know myself:

Capacious

Limpid

Obsequious

Perspicacious

Solecism

Transpicuous



I believe I've used some of these myself, and I think I've got them all correct. smile .....

The Cap was, indeed, capacious and you could cram several dozen d'Antibes in---and even a few Ferrats.

The plaster cast on his left foot hurt like hell when he walked, and he limpid away slowly and in much pain.

"Obsequious and ye shall find."

The weather was hot and humid in the swamps, and the perspicacious rivulets dampened his T-shirt as he slogged along.

When he noticed the thinning solecism on his shoe, he repaired immediately to the shoe repair shop to get it fixed.

The male to female surgery had worked quite well for Jennifer, but without a matching change of clothing, she was transpicuous in a crowd.

I had my doubts going along, but I think you nailed that last one.

I've seen commentators say it on the Sunday morning political talk shows. They pronounce it "quicks ah tick," rather than "key hoe tick" as you'd expect from the usual (Spanish) pronunciation of Don Quixote.

Ejaculate: To exclaim a short utterance, often out of surprise, anger or excitement.

The other meaning of the term is used of course, but the above meaning only ever shows up in books, I find.

'Royalties'.

This is a noun used usually in connection with the terms 'tight-fisted', 'overdue', or various expletives connected to the word 'publisher'.

Somtimes employed in a theological context as in, 'God knows how I'll get this draft in in time: I've already had an advance on the projected royalties'.
