The Closing Word: Perspicuous

The Closing Word: PerspicuousThis week we continue our vocabulary-building series, “The Closing Word.” Each week we provide a new word to help build your vocabulary and show you an example of how to use it.

This week’s closing word:


Pronounced: (pur-SPICK-you-us)

(of language) transparently clear; easily understandable

From “The word perspicuous dates from the 15th century and comes from the Latin word perspicuus, meaning “transparent, clear,” which comes from the verb perspicere, meaning “to look at closely.” Language that is perspicuous is language that is easily understood — to the point where you can almost see it.”

“Real estate contracts can be confusing, so it’s your job as an agent to make them perspicuous for your clients.”
