The Kama Sutra for the vocabulary fanatic.

Long-time lurker, first-time poster.

I subscribe to the Dictionary.com WOTD feed, and usually am not led to spontaneous combustion via giggling by reading the comments of those (usually quite didactic) entries.

Well, today was very different.

Word of the day: debouch
Definitions: 1. To march out (as from a wood, defile, or other narrow or confined spot) into the open.
2. To emerge; to issue.


Not to be confused with 'debauch' (v. to corrupt; n. an orgy).

I suppose it could be said that he who exits an orgy has debouched after being debauched.
