Nice one OP. But had to to use oxford dictionary online version to look up some of the words and realised that some don't exist or are old-fashioned. For instance, tacenda does not exist so also is niblings. In contrast, words like agelast, labrose are old-fashioned and no longer in-use. Nevertheless, thanks for sharing the knowledge.

SCHADENFREUDE:
Growing up, I always thought a Sadist is one who takes pleasure from another person's failure, till I came across SCHADENFREUDE. This is actually someone who derives joy from another person's misfortune.

thanks for the LABROSE and PHILTRUM. now in the ancient egyptian hieroglyphs the MOUTH is a prominent glyph. The mouth represents power because as we know only elders have a say while the youths or powerless are asked to keep quiet. so the mouth represents power. the lips cover the mouth so the lips cover the power. so lips symbolically are a curse. so the bigger the lips ( LABROSE ) the bigger the curse ( hence why africans are catching hell ). and the deeper the groove ( PHILTRUM ) the bigger the curse.
