The obscure word of the week is effable

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

It means something is able to be described in words. Pretty much a description of any English word, really. Your challenge? Write a sentence (or two) in the comments using this word.

2 thoughts on “The obscure word of the week is effable

  1. To describe an experience as “ineffable” is so commonplace that the meaning of the word becomes obscured, leading one to ponder how, instead, a description of an ineffable experience may be made effable.

  2. Most things in life are effable, which may be why you hardly ever see this word. And to the uninformed, it looks like it might be a euphemism for something bad. Sort of like “effing.”
