While looking through the 'back formation' words I found the term 'nonce' and thought it might be worthwhile to search in the etymology field:
> Found: 36 entries > -------------------------------------------------------------------- > > 1. accentuality > 2. beetle > 3. bimetallic > 4. blood-strange > 5. branskate > 6. bulling > 7. canage > 8. colp > 9. compliment > 10. cornu-cap'd > 11. counter-order > 12. cousiness > 13. crab > 14. darling > 15. dearly > 16. denounce > 17. denounce > 18. denouncement > 19. emberlucock > 20. enounce > 21. fylfot > 22. holimonth > 23. humblesso > 24. ist > 25. liripipionated > 26. misadventure > 27. nonce > 28. nunce > 29. ought > 30. patrollotism > 31. progenerate > 32. saunter > 33. straint > 34. transprose > 35. trudgeon > 36. vagulateRealizing that I wasn't absolutely certain what the boundaries of 'nonce' might be, I did a lookup of the entry:
