Today's word of the day is oscitant. It's spelled O-S-C-I-T-A-N-T. Oscitant is an adjective that means drowsy.
Coming directly from the Latin word Oscitans (Oh ski TAN) which means sluggish, oscitant can be used to describe the state of being sleepy or lazy. Professor Brooks took a nap while the students watched a film. This was unusual behavior for the professor, but he'd never been so oscitant in class before.
Once again, the spelling of oscitant is O-S-C-I-T-A-N-T.
