Pellucid




What a fantastic word! A word that simply sounds as lyrical as it is beautifully rounded. A pebble of a word that drops with a soft splash that resounds with a musicality all of its own. A lemon drop of a word that I intend, in a very Stephen Fry (or maybe Will Self) way to liberally slip into all conversations!

Adjective
Literary
1. transparent or translucent
2. extremely clear in style and meaning [Latin pellucidus]

Not a word I could squeeze into my monosyllabic conversations I must admit but better coming from the lips of the likes of Brian Sewell or Stephen Fry.
