When I first came up with this list, I thought I would have to choose between “pig” and “tiger.”
I am not sure I could find a tiger, but I did come across this story about a young girl who was killed by a tiger.
But what if I could only find “titanic”?
As far as I know, there is no known definition for “titans,” but a Wikipedia article says “tens of thousands of people were killed by the beasts of ancient times.”
Titanic, of course, is a mythical sea monster that was killed in the ancient Roman war of Carthage.
The list below includes all words used to describe “towers of power” in modern times.
There are also some words that don’t get a mention in the Oxford English Dictionary.
For example, “labor” is not in the OED, and “power” is a “political” word.
If you want to read the full list, go to the O.E.D. homepage to download the full document.
