No.  They are quail, epigamic and apogee.

quail • \KWAIL\  • verb
1 : to give way : falter
*2 : to recoil in dread or terror : cower
Example Sentence:
Even though she quailed at the thought of rejection, Gwen asked Marcel out to dinner.

epigamic (ep-i-GAM-ik) adjective

Of or relating to a trait or behavior that attracts a mate.

Examples: In an animal, bright feathers or big antlers. In a human, a sports car or a big bust.

[From Greek epigamos (marriageable), from epi- (upon) + gamos (marriage).]

apogee \AP-uh-jee\, noun:
1. The point in the orbit of the moon or of an artificial satellite that is at the greatest distance from the center of the earth.
2. The farthest or highest point; culmination.

You are a good man, DirtDawg.  Yesterday's word had me stumped.  It was pignus, which is a pledge or security for a debt.

Here's the game.  Try to use any or all of the words of the day from the links below (I picked three that use pretty good words) in ANOTHER THREAD, IN CORRECT CONTEXT.  Then link to it here.  Think of it as making Intensity more interesting, cerebral or annoying, whichever sounds best to you.
