Interesting and Esoteric Words of the Slate Podcast Literati: Nov. 12, 2009

Latest notable terms from this week’s Slate Culture Gabfest and Slate Political Gabfest (feel free to email me suggestions or leave them in the comments to the main page):

  • contrapuntal [JT, CG11-10-09]
  • plaudits [DS, CG11-10-09]
  • programmatic [DS, CG11-10-09]

Honorable mention (questionable selections): pabulum (does anyone really know what the heck pabulum is?) and speaks to (as in, “that speaks to this issue”–God, I hate that figure of speech).
