that's what my dictionary says. my mom used this word last night in scattergories. i think it was for college major or something like that. none of us knew what it meant, but we let her have the point. it's a good thing that we did. i came in last place after my mom and rachel. rachel won. it was a fun game. it was also fun finding out a new word.
