fulgent

Pronounced: FULL-juhnt, adj

Notes: Despite sounding like an Englishman after a large meal, it has nothing to do with that


Yesterday’s word

The word chambrer means to warm up wine to room temperature.

Background

The word comes from the French word chambre (room).

First used

Rex Stout may have been one of the first people to use this word; the Nero Wolfe novel And Be a Villain was published in 1948, using this word. Most dictionaries have this entering English in the 1950s.
