Build your vocabulary with anfractuosity
By default, my Anki flashcard decks of foreign language vocabulary show me words I've added myself (usually because I had to look them up and figured if I memorized them I could spare Future Tracy a riffle through the dictionary). When those run out, though, Anki switches to cards I've downloaded from the Internet. And as we all know, the Internet has a strange set of priorities.
I knew what a carillon was — I used to live within earshot of one of the jangly nuisances — but since someone who plays the French horn is a French horn player, I wouldn't have guessed English had a specific word for "carillon player"1. How wrong I was. Or would have been.
The Esperanto word for the bell-banging pest in the tower is charmingly logical.
