vernacular

In my recent studies, I’ve been happening across some words that, while not altogether foreign, are at least rare enough that I have to look them up on my handy dandy pocket iTouch dictionary app. (Best app ever.)

insouciant: free from concern, worry, or anxiety; carefree; nonchalant

perspicacious: having keen mental perception and understanding; discerning

milieu: surroundings, especially of a social or cultural nature

gnosis: knowledge of spiritual matters; mystical knowledge
