I have nothing to say and it's now almost two hours after the time posted above, yet I haven't written a single word other than the word of the day which I copied and pasted. So, there won't be anymore words to this entry. We'll just call it done and number it among the less-than stellar entries I've done this year.
: plain to the understanding especially because of clarity and precision of presentation
Perspicuous is based on Latin perspicere, meaning to see through, so that which is perspicuous is clear and understandable. Perspicuous has a close cousin, perspicacious, which is used of a person with astute insight. Both words come directly from Latin adjectives that mean the same thing they do: perspicuous from perspicuus, and perspicacious from perspicax. Needless to say, it's possible to confuse the two. One easy way to keep out of trouble is to think of perspicUous as the "U" word, and remember that it means Understandable -- in contrast to the "A" word, perspicAcious, that means Astute.
