Theme week! -- the letter X.


xanthic (ZAN-thik) - adj., yellowish.


Or sometimes just yellow. Compare xanthous, which is yellow, or sometimes yellowish. I'd understand if you mixed up the two in daily use. Both are from Greek root xanthós, yellow, with basically equivalent adjectival endings.

No post tomorrow because of a local holiday. Stay safe!
