No new words in my reading this week so I had to turn to my Word-a-Day calendar.
1. indagate – “The defense attorneys requested an adjournment so they could fully indagate the new evidence.”
Indagate is a verb that means to search into: investigate.
2. miscible – “Mr. Remington’s class demonstration showed that, to paraphrase an old saying, oil and water are indeed not miscible.”
Miscible is an adjective that means capable of being mixed; specifically: capable of mixing in any ratio without separation of two phases.
3. commove – “He who has seen the sea commoved with a great hurricane, thinks of it very differently from him who has seen it only in a calm.” — Robert Louis Stevenson, The Silverado Squatters
In this case, commove means to move violently: agitate. It can also mean to rouse intense feeling in: excite to passion.
