That Word is the segment on my blog where I post new words that I discover newly or have jumped out at me once again. If you love finding new words this post is for you. If you're a writer looking for different words to describe some this post may also be for you.
Where I Discovered it?
A writer's group on Facebook posted this from dictionary.com's word for today. I liked the meaning and thought that it was unique hence it was added to my list for That Word's
1. Turning yellow; yellowish
An Example Sentence
The flavescent skin held an infection.
This word reminds my more of flavour which made me think first that maybe it could describe a flavour but instead it describes a colour. I think it’s a cool sounding word for describing the action of turning yellow or yellowish. It’s probably a word I won’t use often but it would be nice to use it sometimes. To me it almost sounds like a posh word. Most likely in part because of its simple meaning.
