What is a Taphophile?
Maybe such things don't bother you, but personally, I don't like it when people refer to my interest in cemeteries as necrophilia. I am not interested in dead bodies: I am a folklorist, an anthropologist, a student of history! I love to walk in cemeteries and I enjoy reading histories of peoples' fears and hopes for their eternal rest.
Taphophilia is the best name for my syndrome. It means "love of cemeteries and funerals". All those who walk the shaded avenues of our favorite graveyard now have a word to describe ourselves without sounding like strange sexual perverts.
