Paging Dr. Dennett

Like everybody else, I enjoy the Philosophical Lexicon.  I thought up some possible submissions, both dealing with Michigan philosophers whom I hope to meet in the coming months. 

gibbarish, n.  Language which doesn't describe the world, but rather allows one to express one's acceptance of norms.  v. gibbar, to speak gibbarish: "Simon gibbar'd, 'Hooray for tying yourself to a tree!'"

vellemania, n. An inexplicable obsession with bringing anti-rationalists into the Kantian tradition.
