The Research and Sandwiches Division of World Lexicography Headquarters has made quite a find this time.
epalpebrate – (adj.) lacking eyebrows.
This is a heck of a useful word, don’t you think? It tells you what trait Buddhist monks, salamanders, and inept barbecuers have in common—because you just knew there was something. Additionally: if you condense the definition to “eyebrowless,” then this is a word that’s got more syllables than its definition! We at WLHQ love that sort of thing.
WLHQ encourages you to introduce the word epalpebrate into daily conversation and report the results. Listen to xersradio.com each Thursday evening at 6pm Central for a new Word of the Week!
