Smeuse (pronounced “sm-yoo-z”, rhymes with “use”) – a 19th Century word from Victorian England used to describe a hole that has been created by the repeated passage of a small animal, typically in a hedge.
I’d like to believe this is a word that can be applied to something like this:
Verbis Obscurum is a collection of words old and new, rare or nearing extinction, to describe everyday phenomena of which you are not necessarily conscious, and which you lack the words to adequately describe. Once you’re told about them, you’ll start seeing them everywhere.
