A few minutes ago I saw the word "plagiary" in the table of contents of a reference book. I first misread the word as "plag-iary," rhyming with "aviary," or "bestiary." I took it to mean a collection of plagiarisms. And then I remembered that there is no such word as "plagiary" meaning a bestiary of plagiarism, and I was disappointed.
