Word of the Week – February 26, 2022



French, 14th century

Containing or presenting the essential facts of something in a comprehensive but concise way.

It stems from the Old French “compendieux,” from the Latin “compendiosus,” which means “advantageous, brief.”

Example: My compendious speech on the evolution of canines impressed my fellow Toastmasters.
