Amazing Adjectives, Number Sixteen!

May 9, 2017

Here is another word that I have never actually run across in any book I have read to date, but you just never know when you will encounter a new word or two.  As exemplified in The Highly Selective Dictionary of Golden Adjectives for the Extraordinarily Literate,

“I will never again buy a house that is cursed with a declivitous driveway, no matter how attractive the price.”

declivitous

\ dih-kliv-i-tuh s \, adjective;

 1.  having a somewhat steep downward slope.
