Xenology: (chiefly in science fiction) the scientific study of alien biology, cultures, etc.


Here’s a word we caught this week. We thought we’d share xenology with you since one of us is a trained anthropologist. Maybe in the future, Nick could turn his hand to the study of extraterrestrial societies too?

Here’s an example of it in use:

When I trained as a xenologist back on Earth, I didn’t think I’d ever actually have to put my skills into practice. Shockingly, it seems aliens do exist, after all.

What can you do with this word? Show us how you’d use this creatively in the comments below…
