The obscure word of the week is jejune

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

It’s an adjective derived from the Latin word for fasting, and means simplistic; or – in the case of writing – dull. Your challenge? Write a sentence (or two) in the comments using this word.

  1. Oh — i remember this from an Arthur C. Clarke story. One character said he’d been asked to come up with a synonym for “insipid”. A second character said “vapid” and a third added “jejune” – “not to be outdone”.

    So, very much not obscure to me.

    And I’ve incidentally fulfilled your challenge. 😉
