Word of the day

Back again!

Looky at this:

Sine qua non

Pronunciation Sound Clip RealAudio

This week's theme: Latin terms in English.

sine qua non (SY-nee kway NON) noun

An indispensable condition; prerequisite.

[Latin sine qua non (without which not).]

What a perfect word when the romance publishing industry is expounding of late on the sine qua non of the HEA format.
