cryptolect \ˈkript-ō-ˌlekt\ noun: a secretive language form used by a subculture; an arcane cant

Etymology: crypt- concealed, hidden, secret (from ancient Greek kruptos) + -lect form of speech (from ancient Greek lektos)

I dare you to find a more awesome word.

"Ambisinistrous" has always been my favourite. Possibly because if you ask people for the opposite of "ambidextrous," they all struggle for about ten minutes trying to think of a prefix that means "neither."
