LightbeamLuculent is rarely used, but I think it deserves to be revived. It would be a lovely way to describe someone’s writing, if you were so inclined.

Luculent means ‘clear in expression’ or ‘brightly shining’.

Its origin is thought to be 15th century; in Middle English it meant ‘shiny’. The word stems from the Latin word luculentus meaning ‘full of light’.

  1. Just the word I was looking for to describe the sensations one of my characters feels (actually will be feeling later on)- thanks very much!
