I had to go back to my Word-a-Day calendar this week.
1. vorago – “At the movie’s conclusion, the earth opens and the entire evil empire topples into the vorago.”
Vorago is a noun that means an engulfing chasm: abyss.
2. inenarrable – “Their songs were . . . muffled and sad with the inenarrable misery of their bondage.” — Ross Lockridge, Jr., RAINTREE COUNTY
Inenarrable is an adjective that means incapable of being narrated: indescribable.
3. terpsichorean – “Emerson’s terpsichorean talents are limited to the waltz.” — Elizabeth Peters, HE SHALL THUNDER IN THE SKY
I thought terpsichorean might be related to music and I was close. It’s an adjective that means of or relating to dancing.
