Superior Person's Tuesday!

Procerity, n Tallness, height. "I think you showed great procerity out there, darling," you say proudly to your gangling teenager after she has just done her bit in the ballet class's end-of-term performance.
Robert Wadlow shows more procerity than any other person in recorded history.

Each Tuesday, we’ll offer up a Superior Word for the edification of our Superior Readers, via the volumes of the inimitable Peter Bowler. You can purchase all or any of the four Superior Person’s Books of Words from the Godine website. Procerity appears in the First.
