concision

Postby KatyBr » Wed Sep 28, 2005 12:28 pm

con·ci·sion (kən-sĭzh'ən)
n.
The state or quality of being concise: “a role made . . . dramatically accessible by the concision of the form” (George Steiner).
Archaic. A cutting apart or off.


reminds me of a scalpel a blade both precise and concise.
con·cise (kən-sīs')
adj.
Expressing much in few words; clear and succinct.

[Latin concīsus, past participle of concīdere, to cut up : com-, intensive pref.; see com– + caedere, to cut.]

con·cise'ly adv.
con·cise'ness n.


at least one would hope that blade was concise, as small as possible an incision... lol
