Word of the day: 1/30/15

Word: Insuperable

You pronounce it: [in-soo-per-uh-buh l]

Definition: 

adjective
1. incapable of being passed over, overcome, or surmounted:
“an insuperable barrier.”

Origin:

1300-50; Middle English < Latin insuperābilis. See in-3, superable

I found it while re-reading John Milton’s “Paradise Lost, the introduction.”

Had Milton stuck with his plan to present the Fall as a tragedy he would have faced one insuperable obstacle.

Today’s word is an easy one to most, I’m sure, but I like the word. It is especially easy if you speak spanish as it is a very common word “insuperable.” I feel it is not used enough, hence my need to list it. I want to use it in a sentence today and, perhaps, you can join me!

Let me know what you think. . .don't be shy.
