Word of the Day

Since my readers so resoundingly objected to my persistent posting of words with negative connotations, I'll post a more neutral word from Slashdot (who would have thought anyone there knew how to spell? Oh, because they just cross-posted from Discover.com).

inchoate (adjective) -

being only partly in existence or operation; especially : imperfectly formed or formulated
In the discussions of intelligent design, one hears a yearning for an old-fashioned creation story, in which some singular, inchoate entity stepped in to give rise to complex life-forms--humans in particular. (link)
