Did you know? Pedophobia is the fear of soil – NOT children; that would be paedophobia.

Similarly a pedophile is someone who has a strong affection for soil. Not children – that would be someone who thinks he is great but is actually a screwed-up man. Someone who lives in a flat on Linnett Close, Chingford, and regularly visits a building on Vestry Road, Walthamstow.

I have just read about phobia in the glossary at the end of Chapter 10, “The human mind”, under the section THE STUDY OF MAN in Volume 2, “The human world”, of the Reader’s Digest Library of Modern Knowledge. Did you know? Ochlophobia is the fear of crowds.
