Visual Thesaurus Word of the Day
Saturday, October 20th palimpsest With a Trace Word of the Day:
In situations that require a word that is unambiguously learned and literary, palimpsest is pretty hard to beat. Its roots mean "scraped again," but its meaning has developed into something fairly complex: a phenomenon that bears traces of something that was in its place earlier. A literal palimpsest is a parchment or other document from which writing has been removed to make room for something else.
