Pronounced: AR-guht, noun
Notes: I have a vague memory that I’ve run across this word somewhere, but it didn’t help me with the definition
The word arctophile is “someone who is very fond of teddy bears or collects them”
This word showed up in the 1970s
Background / Comments
The word is from Greek. I recognized the -phile (lover) part. The other part is from arctos (bear)… not (as I first thought) “arctic”.
