Wacky Word Wednesday - Percipient

Percipient
(per SIP ee ant)

Someone proudly percipient
Is an insight recipient,
Has wisdom not incipient,
And will ponder 'til omniscient -
The persistent percipient.

Every week I rhyme and define a new wacky word.
Come on over to indulge your inner nerd.
And, please let me know of any weird words you've heard.

  1. I may have to sit and think about a reply for a while. I like to provoke my thoughts before commenting.

  2. Percipient brings to mind
    Another word we'd have to hunt to find
    Perspicacity, like percipient
    Describes those with a keen sense of reality, the gifted recipients
    Of a brain not easily bent by others
    Those seeing one view, and coming up with another, then another

    Persipient and Perspicacity,
    words with a real sense of reality

    1. They are definitely related
      though my ears aren't inundated
      with their sounds, as you stated.

      :)

  3. Another fun one,
    perhaps written under the gun

    in this contest you've again won
    you percipient one.

      but a percipient one is hard to snare. :)

    1. A less rare word than the others? Yes.
      Yet I felt it was a worthy guest. :)

  5. Hi Rachel, you definitely fit the definition--

Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
