Daffy's Logolept Page and Word a Day Blog

A blog to help others improve their vocabularies. I feature several words every day. The words are eclectic mix of words gathered over many years. I also feature sentence examples, and I try to write in an informal friendly style.

Back again. Today's word is Pisculent: Full of or containing fish.

At first glance, one would think this a pretty useless word, but after some thought, it becomes apparent that there are alot of things that meet the qualifications. The sea, the nets of the fisherman who make their living there, (on a good day) the display showcases at your local market, the Penguin after a good meal, and many other things are full of fish.

I prefer to use it figuratvely, as in today's sentence "After getting the facts, and spotting the strange shoes under the bed, Joe decided that his wife's story about remaining faithful while he was away was indeed pisculent." (A fish story!)

See ya' !
