Word of the Day: Perspicuous

I just came across the word "perspicuous" for the first time in my life. As the context did not make its meaning obvious I decided to look the word up in Webster's dictionary. This is what I found:


 adj \pər-ˈspi-kyə-wəs\

Definition of PERSPICUOUS

: plain to the understanding especially because of clarity and precision of presentation perspicuous argument>
So this puzzling new word, amusingly enough, is meant to connote clarity and ease of understanding. Not since "pedantic" or "resistentialism" have I been so amused by the meaning of a newfound word. I felt I just had to share. Enjoy, and have a great day.
