Word of the day - diaphanous


Recommended Posts

I had only ever heard of diaphanous in terms of chemistry: the ability to transmit light, e.g. translucent.

My Italian-American college chemistry and research advisor and I used to rapidly shoot obscure chemistry and Catholic Church terms at each other on occasion like, "Michaelis-Menten Equation," "Diaphanous Rock," "Oil of Chrism," "Confiteor," etc.
