define:’d

Volume II

Volume I is here.

I’ve listed this month’s “define:” searches below. Same format, word followed by comments in parentheses:

Celerity (Think Acceleration)

Censorious

Conglobation

Denouement (French is weird)

Frisian (Neal Stephenson giving an analogy.)

Germane (NOT Teutonic! That association wouldn’t be germane.)

Judas Cradle (Eh?)

Lye (Fight Club!)

Patternless (It exists! Apparently, saying “Random” doesn’t cut it anymore)

Perdition

Posit (Opposite of Deposit?)

Reductionist

Travail

Trilby (Fedora, now Trilby. Any more hats I should know of?)

XY problem

Baroque (17th century art, type of pearl, stained glass, and more; Meanings overload!)

Callused (Eww)

CMB (Yeah. Of the “Science. It works” fame)

Collude

Diddle (Um, yeah. I thought it was a musical instrument.)

Homounculus (Full Metal Alchemist)

Indictment

Prosaic (as opposed to esoteric?)

Recondite (is itself recondite)

Seditious (as opposed to subversive)

Trenchant (Trenchant? Trenchant?)

October, then.
