Phobias


Phobias
This is a list that has been stewing on my hard drive for several years, defining 136 phobias, irrational or pathological fears of various things. The reason I've resisted is that someone else has done a far more thorough job than I could ever do, over at The Phobia List, where around 530 phobias are listed. However, so many people over the years have asked for a Phrontistery phobia list that I've finally capitulated. While the Phobia List includes phobias used in medical papers or other printed sources, but not in a major reference dictionary, I strongly recommend it to those interested in phobias. NOTE: I am not an expert on phobias or mental illness. My interest in phobias is strictly limited to words.
