Both the word "Ineffable" and "Circumlocution" are contradictory by definition. For context;
first The very existence of the words shows defies its definition; so should one say "indescribable" as that expresses the nature, and connotes the meaning of the word Ineffable
Likewise, I can't quote this hear any longer as the definition has changed in both Merriam-Webster and Dictionary.com have recently changed their definition from to
So two questions; 1. As far as writing, does the use of these words have any effect on a writers prestige, and 2. Is there a word for Words that defy their very definition
Also; I'm very interested to see if anyone has any other words to add to this
