HARD TO USE WORD

Standard

Because few if any people know it

Defenestration

From Wikipedia

Defenestration is the act of throwing someone or something out of a window.[1]

window

The term was coined around the time of an incident in Prague Castle in the year 1618. The word comes from the Latin de- (out of or away from) and fenestra (window or opening).[2] Likewise, it can also refer to the condition of being thrown out of a window, as in “The Defenestration of Ermintrude Inch“.[3]

While the act of defenestration connotes the forcible or peremptory removal of an adversary, and the term is sometimes used in just that sense,[4] it also suggests breaking the windows in the process (de- also means removal). Although defenestrations can be fatal depending on the height of the window through which a person is thrown or throws oneself or due to lacerations from broken glass, the act of defenestration need not carry the intent of, or result in, death.

I came across this word years ago and have yet to use it in a story even tho I really want to.

tell me some of the words or phrases you want to use and have not found the right situation

as always thanks for reading
