The obscure word of the week is crasis

look_it_up_T httpwww.clipartpal.comclipart_pdeducationdictionary_10586.htmlThis week’s really obscure English word is crasis.

It’s a technical grammatical term originating from Greek, referring to the blending of two adjacent vowels into one long one. For instance, ‘ee’, as in ‘leer’

Your challenge? Write a sentence (or two) in the comments using this word.
