Really? That’s a real word?

Here are four more from recent Boston Globe puzzles, words that I had to look up. I had never seen them before, and probably never will again. Are you familiar with any of them?

Abysm (n.): an abyss

Arriviste (n.): an upstart; a bounder

Fleer (v.) : to laugh derisively (at); sneer or jeer (at); (n.) a derisive grimace, laugh, etc.; gibe

Horal (adj.): of or relating to an hour, or to hours
