Word of the Week: Inexplicable

This week’s word is—clearly—”inexplicable.”

I often feel that things are inexplicable. The success of Twilight, for example; or the way my dog likes clementines; or the stupidity of the American public at large.

Not you. The people who don’t read this.



Unable to be explained or accounted for.
For some inexplicable reason her mind went completely blank.

Late Middle English: from French, or from Latin inexplicabilis “that cannot be unfolded”, from in– ‘not’ +

~Oxford American Dictionaries


P.S. I think my dog just chomped up and swallowed a tooth. That is also inexplicable.
