Word of the Week: nescience

Howdy, Word Lovers! Last week’s WOW was jocose. The DD says she knows this one. According to her, it means playful or silly. Let’s see if she’s right.

Merriam-Webster’s definition is: given to joking; merry; characterized by joking, or humorous. Pretty darn close–especially that silly part. Wish I had the daughter’s vocab!

This week’s WOW is nescience. Here’s what I think nescience might mean:

nescience: (ˈne-sh(ē-)ən(t)s) 1. new science (a reference to psychology???) 2. newt conscience 3. nepotism knowledge

What are your guesses for nescience? Comment below and see if you’re right next week!
