I learned a new word today. Its a noun, but I’m going to have corwin75Steve approve it as an adjective for me. trogdor_jrSomeone asked me for three adjectives to describe their personality, and I shot two off without thought, but I wanted to make sure the third one counted. So I got on Merriam-Webster Online and started word hopping. I came up with this:

diapason (di·a·pa·son): 1 a : a burst of sound b : the principal foundation stop in the organ extending through the complete range of the instrument c (1) : the entire compass of musical tones (2) : RANGE, SCOPE

The part that I felt fit him was “the entire compass of musical tones.”

Whatever, I still learned a new word.
