I had to turn to my Word-a-Day calendar again this week.
1. luculent – “‘I have expressed my feelings in luculent terms,’ he wrote, ‘and since there can be no question about what I mean, I simply await her response.'”
Luculent is an adjective that means clear in thought or expression.
2. septentrional – “When he tired of the long, septentrional winters of New England, Grandfather retired to Florida.”
Septentrional is an adjective that means northern. I don’t think I’ll be adopting this word since it’s a mouthful.
3. vaporware – “Experts in the computer industry suspected that the vaporware being pushed by the software company was still full of bugs and would never hit the market.”
Vaporware is a computer-related product that has been widely advertised but has not and may never become available.
