Word of the Day

Phenomenologically.  adv.  Related to:


1. A philosophy or method of inquiry based on the premise that reality consists of objects and events as they are perceived or understood in human consciousness and not of anything independent of human consciousness.
2. A movement based on this, originated about 1905 by Edmund Husserl.

Used in a sentence: "Thank you for phenomenologicallly solving this problem."

This word was used in an email written by our Japanese contacts.  We're all very impressed -- and slightly embarrassed -- that they've managed to out-vocab us.  (And yes, I'm using "out-vocab" as a verb).
