I've started reading Aldous Huxley's novel Point Counter Point of 1928. In chapter vii (on p. 106 of my Random House edition) I found this sentence:
One does not fall very desperately in love with a loud speaker, however pretty, however firmly plump [...], however attractively callipygous.Callipygous (pronounced /ˌkælɪˈpaɪɡəs/ (OED also offers /kælɪˈpɪdʒəs/)) means 'having well-shaped buttocks'. I wonder how often I shall be able to use this word in the future.
