I ran across this word today in my reading of Sam Harris’s book, The End of Faith, and I think it’s a fine word to share with all of you.
Inchoate (in-KOH-it, -eyt or, especially Brit., IN-koh-eyt) [Latin; incohāre; to begin, to start work on]
- not yet completed or fully developed; rudimentary.
- just begun; incipient.
- not organized; lacking order. /li>
Usage: Even though the Democrats could capture one or both houses of congress, their plan of action appears to be an inchoate mass of ideas at this point in time.
