Superior Person's Tuesday

xanthopsia, n. an ophthalmic condition in which everything appears yellow. Condition of a person wearing dark glasses purchased from the "sale" section at the local gas station. A certain unnamed British rock group, for example, may have been wearing said frames as they were writing a certain colorful tune.

"And it was all yellow..."

 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. Xanthopsia appears in the second.
