Dictionary.com's Word of the Day

I'm a huge fan of words and there's nothing wrong with learning a little something in the midst of fluff. I encourage each of you to use the "Word of the Day" throughout your day. HOORAY FOR ENGLISH!

turbid \TUR-bid\, adjective:
1. Muddy; thick with or as if with roiled sediment; not clear; -- used of liquids of any kind.
2. Thick; dense; dark; -- used of clouds, air, fog, smoke, etc.
3. Disturbed; confused; disordered.

Turbid comes from Latin turbidus, "confused, disordered," from turba, "disturbance, commotion."

Let us use it in a sentence:

Many Americans feel this Administration's policies are turbid at best.
