Favorite Words: Inscrutable

Posted: August 31, 2013 in Favorite Words

It’s a fancy way of saying that something is not understandable.  I probably wouldn’t use this  in an informal conversation, but I would probably use it when writing a paper or a short story, for example.

Example: “The expression on her face was inscrutable; I wasn’t able to tell if she was angry or unshaken.  I found out after she didn’t call me two months after the incident.”

Another word that I really like is enigmatic.  It basically has the same definition.
