Superior Person's Tuesday!

Ephetic: a. Habitually suspending judgement, given to skepticism. Like aporia (q.v.) an exceptionally Superior word.  The fact that ephecticism generally engenders ineffectualness should enable you to develop one or two phonically pleasing sentences. Alternatively, cultivate its use in the same sentence as eclectic (wide-ranging in acceptance of doctrines, opinions, etc.).

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. Ergasiophobia appears in the first.
