Wordnik word of the day: spirituel

by Grant Barrett on September 2, 2009

Today’s word of the day is spirituel, “having or evidencing a refined mind and wit.” The feminine form of the word—spirituelle—is defined even more fully: “characterized by or exhibiting a refined intellectuality, grace, or delicacy.” Both are French cognates of the English spiritual, which concerns the intangible nature and characteristics of humans.
