Lucubrate

May 10th, 2008 · No Comments · writing

What a delightful find! The Visual Thesaurus Word of the Day is “Lucubrate”:

“It’s a verb meaning to flesh out an idea in writing, usually in a scholarly way. The Latin root means “work by lamplight,” as scholars of the pre-laptop era were obliged to do”. This is exactly what I was doing all week as I was getting ready to this weekend’s seminar on Human Development, working on my presentation on Lev Vygotsky.
