credulous \KREJ-uh-lus\, adjective:


1. Ready or inclined to believe on slight or uncertain evidence.
2. Based on or proceeding from a disposition to believe too readily.
Credulous monarchs were easy game for the numerous charlatans and tricksters who toured the courts of Europe trying to dupe them into parting with real gold by means of little more than a promise that they would repay such investments thousandfold.
-- Janet Gleeson, The Arcanum
To her critics, she was a madam and con artist who charged credulous clients . . . small fortunes to cast spells and bring about the deaths of rivals.
-- Laurence Bergreen, Louis Armstrong: An Extravagant Life
And unless our educational system focuses more on teaching students how to think than on what to think, our populace will become increasingly credulous.
-- Theodore Schick Jr., "The End of Science?", Skeptical Inquirer, March/April 1997
Credulous derives from Latin credulus, "believing easily," from credere, "to believe."

Re: Doctor Dictionary - Word Of The Day - June 14th, 2007

indigence \IN-dih-juhn(t)s\, noun:


A state of extreme poverty or destitution.
He is ever a handful of pocket change away from utter indigence.
-- Sven Birkerts, "The Socratic Method", New York Times, November 9, 1997
The lean and hungry, unkempt, and addled look I'd cultivated throughout my twenties was beginning to read like desperation and indigence as I stepped into my mid-thirties.
-- Stephen McCauley, The Man of the House
Indigence comes from Latin indigentia, "neediness," from indigens, indigent- present participle of indigere to be in need of, from Latin indu (archaic form of in-), "in" + egere "to be needy, to need, to lack." The adjective form is indigent.

ukase \yoo-KAYS; -KAYZ; YOO-kays; -kayz\, noun:


1. In imperial Russia, a published proclamation or order having the force of law.
2. Any order or decree issued by an authority; an edict.
I took a playwriting course from the noted Prof. A. M. Drummond, a huge man on crutches who right off the bat delivered a ukase never to begin a play with the telephone ringing.
-- Arthur Laurents, Original Story By
This new ukase, however, ignited bureaucratic warfare and spawned rival and conflicting rules and concepts, frittering away time and effort.
-- Richard B. Frank, Downfall: The End of the Imperial Japanese Empire
Ukase derives from Russian ukaz, "decree," from Old Church Slavonic ukazu, "a showing, proof," from u-, "at, to" + kazati, "to point out, to show."

1. To take the place of (another), especially through intrigue or underhanded tactics; as, a rival supplants another.
2. To take the place of and serve as a substitute for.
He's your rival. The one you'll have to supplant.
-- Peter Brooks, World Elsewhere
In traditional accounts, early Greek times appear as a succession of migrations; one tribe drives out and supplants another until driven out in turn by a third, and this process may have lasted many hundreds of years.
-- Jacob Burckhardt, The Greeks and Greek Civilization
Economic opportunities for a saddler and harness maker were beginning to decline . . . as railroads supplanted the stagecoach trade.
-- Dennis J. Hutchinson, The Man Who Once Was Whizzer White

Re: Doctor Dictionary - Word Of The Day - June 14th, 2007

prepotency \pree-POTE-n-see\, noun:


1. The quality or condition of having superior power, influence, or force; predominance.
2. (Biology) The capacity, on the part of one of the parents, as compared with the other, to transmit more than his or her own share of characteristics to their offspring.
The awesome prepotency of this smokescape is no illusion, for this is an epicentre of power, oil capital of the Western world and the most industrialised corner of the United States.
-- "Dark heart of the American dream", The Observer, June 16, 2002
Though Sir Tristram lost his record, his prepotency was reinforced at the Doomben races as three of the big race winners carry his blood.
-- "Sir Tristram loses record", Evening Post (Wellington, New Zealand), May 29, 2001
These several remarks are apparently applicable to animals; but the subject is here much complicated, partly owing to the existence of secondary sexual characters; but more especially owing to prepotency in transmitting likeness running more strongly in one sex than in the other, both when one species is crossed with another, and when one variety is crossed with another variety.
-- Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species
Prepotency is from Latin praepotentia, from prae-, "before" + potentia, "power," from potens, "able, powerful," present participle of posse, "to be able."

When the evidence is plentiful and the theories well confirmed, we can be more confident of the historical scenarios we propose; when theories are weak or evidence scarce, we ought to be more circumspect.
-- Robert J. Richards, "You Can't Get There From Here", New York Times, February 27, 2000
One had the feeling, indeed, that he rather enjoyed being mysterious, for although he regularly granted interviews to scholars and journalists after leaving the State Department, he was always circumspect and often cryptic in what he said.

Sadie is the gracious one, as if being the elder requires that she be circumspect and observe the manners.

Re: Doctor Dictionary - Word Of The Day - June 14th, 2007

sedition \sih-DISH-un\, noun:


Conduct or language inciting resistance to or rebellion against lawful authority.
Most of us now accept as common sense what was once prosecuted as sedition, namely Tom Paine's proposition that "the idea of hereditary legislators is as absurd as a hereditary mathematician -- as absurd as a hereditary poet laureate".
-- Geoffrey Robertson, "Dumping our Queen", The Guardian, November 6, 1999
At several points in his long career, Jinnah was threatened by the British with imprisonment on sedition charges for speaking in favour of Indian home rule or rights.
-- Akbar S. Ahmed, Jinnah, Pakistan and Islamic Identity
Outspoken critics of the policy have until now faced the possibility of having a charge of sedition brought against them.
-- David Cohen, "Malaysian universities rejecting Chinese students", The Guardian, May 3, 2001
Sedition comes from Latin seditio, sedition-, "a going apart," hence "revolt, insurrection," from se-, "apart" + itio, ition-, "act of going," from ire, "to go."
