Thursday’s Word [Week 8]

We’re coming close to two digits for this series! So cool. Anyway, this week I bring you another word from probably a very familiar source, especially on my blog, and if it isn’t familiar, you should probably make yourself familiar with it because it is very good for new words. Enjoy! And I hope you learn something.

Week: 8
Word: Lapidary
Definition: “(of language) Engraved on or suitable for engraving on stone and therefore elegant and concise; of or relating to stone and gems and the work involved in engraving, cutting, or polishing; a person who cuts, polishes, or engraves gems.” (New Oxford American Dictionary)
Backstory: Alright, this is another word from I promise you I’m not sponsored. XP Anyway, I figured it was cool because I didn’t know what a person who cuts, polishes, or engraves gems was called, and then I looked it up in the dictionary and it even has meaning related to elegant and concise language? Way cool.

Is it just me? Or do you guys also love the look of cut gemstones?

Is it just me? Or do you guys also love the look of cut gemstones?

So, I don’t know how much I’ll use this word, ’cause it’s pretty obscure, and I’m probably gonna forget it soon, but we’ll see. Maybe when I have a jeweler in one of my stories I’ll use it. =P
