The obscure word of the week is biramous

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

It usually refers to a crustacean’s limbs or antennae, and means that it divides to form two branches. Your challenge? Write a sentence (or two) in the comments using this word.

One thought on “The obscure word of the week is biramous

  1. This is a tough one. I’m thinking some types of prickly pear cactus (Opuntia) may be biramous, but maybe not. My first thought was saguaros, but it looks like they grow arms out of the main stem, rather than dividing. Could be that biramous applies only to crustaceans. BTW, not knowing the meaning, one might suspect it has something to do with indecisive romantic inclinations.
