    10 Words - 'Ologies'

    Ah, studying. The gate to knowledge and understanding, and of course that beautiful pointy A. And it’s not just restricted to English and math either – studies these days can pertain to almost anything. Check out a few of these uncommon ‘ologies’.

    1) Alethiology – Study of truth/truth-telling
    “After being lied to by almost every man she met, Cassandra finally took up alethiology until she could pick out the gold from the gilded”

    2) Aristology – Science or art of fine dining
    “Chuck is such a messy eater; he’s in desperate need of Aristology 101”

    3) Balneology – Science of the therapeutic use of baths
    “Even after we told her how much water she was wasting every day, that barmy balneologist wouldn’t stop her hour-long baths”

    4) Cryptozoology – Study of animals for whose existence there is no conclusive proof
    “Disgruntled by the world’s refusal to believe in Crumple-Horned Snorkacks, Luna Lovegood finally found acceptance in the field of cryptozoology”

    5) Campanology – Art of bell-ringing
    “Quasimodo’s Ph.D. in campanology was very much appreciated by the townsfolk of Paris, especially since their previous bell-ringer had been deaf”

    6) Irenology – Study of peace
    “Unfortunately, the irenology class has been getting very few opportunities for hands-on learning in the light of today’s global uncertainty”

    7) Palynology – Study of pollen
    “After continuously sneezing thirty-three times in a row, the palynologist was horrified to find out he had developed an allergy to pollen grains”

    Cool Philematology – Art or study of kissing
    “Even after graduating with top honors in her philematology class, Betty remained a twenty-seven year-old woman without any hands-on experience in her field”

    9) Pseudology – Art of lying
    “Even after five years of pseudology lessons from his older brother, Quentin starts to hyperventilate before he can successfully utter a lie”

    10) Ufology – Study of alien spacecraft
    “Of course I’m going to keep up with my ufology class online! How else am I supposed to know whether it’s Captain Kirk’s spaceship or Captain Picard’s when it lands?”

    try to add some humor to the definitions so readers will want to read on, the length and the format is alright, but it's a bit dry
