Word of the Day

My word of the day, found while reading "Scheme: A Interpreter for Extended Lambda Calculus"


I hope that my thesis defense is perspicuous enough such that even Andykerr can understand it.

I now know that functional usage is more perspicuous than continuation passing though. (according to Sussman and Steele)

If performed with a sufficient element of sprezzatura, your thesis defense will surely be both profound yet perspicuous. Make it appear simple and impress people with content.

I would imagine clarity is only shrugged off when the contribution being hyped is mundane or obvious.
