Today’s Merriam-Webster #definethis Word of the Day is:
Coruscate means “to be brilliant or showy in technique or style”. Occasionally I like to combine #definethis with the Wordnik word of the day, which today is:
Zenzizenzizenzic is a term coined by Welsh mathematician Robert Recorde, which means “the square of a square of a square, or the eighth power of a number”.
To celebrate today’s return of #definethis from summer hiatus, I chose to throw in a third obscure word, an old favorite of mine:
A funambablist is a tight rope walker, as in the circus.
To play define this, use the word of the day in a sentence and tweet your sentence with the hashtag #definethis. The competition runs every week day and there are prizes for the best entries. My entry today:
The funambalist managed to coruscate to the zenzizenzizenzic degree. #definethis #wordnik #needadictonary ;)
Happy autum everyone!
