Very interesting, Saul! Thanks.

Oddly, there were at least a couple of times a rare/odd word was used to describe another rare/odd word.

Here disheveled describes unkempt:

except as a humorous backformation from unkempt, but we still use the negative form unkempt or ill-kempt which refer to a person or room. It means that he, she or it is disheveled or untidy

And here disconcerted describes discomfit:

The verb to discomfit someone means to make the person uneasy, uncomfortable (emotionally), or disconcerted.

Again, cool stuff Saul.

A.J.
