New word: the footnote!

From the convoluted pages of House of Leaves comes a word I felt like I had heard, but had to look up anyway:

amaurotic: Total or partial blindness, especially blindness that occurs without external signs on the eye. (From the Greek for ‘dim’.)

Now that is a super-ornate way of saying something fairly simple. I approve.
