Every week word-lovers post new words they’ve discovered while reading. It’s called Wondrous Words Wednesday and was created by Kathy at Bermuda Onion’s Weblog.
I heard this word on TV while listening to an interview with Senator Adam Schiff:
percipient: “It allows the opposition to line up percipient witnesses.”
Percipient refers to a person having a good understanding of things. By the way, the interviewer on the TV show didn’t know the meaning of the word either. He made a point of asking the senator the definition and then thanking him for giving all of us a new word.
That’s all for me this week. Don’t forget to visit Kathy for more Wondrous Words Wednesday.
