  • soupçon •


Part of Speech: Noun

Meaning: No, this is not a call to dinner but
a noun indicating a very, very small amount,
a scintilla, a trace—far less than would
be expected for dinner.

Notes: Of course, you may spell today’s word
with a younger, beardless C: soupcon. However,
to achieve the maximum impact of the French words you use in your writing, you should
decorate them with the appropriate
diacritical appendages.

In Play: Today’s word refers to the tiniest trace imaginable: “Miss Tate found that the soupçon
of French she acquired in high school was of no value on her vacation in Provence.”
