The Word of the Day for Friday November 21, 2014, is PERICOPE (pa rik a pee)--an excerpt or selection from a book. The plural can be either PERICOPES or PERICOPEA, and both PERICOPAL and PERICOPIC are valid adjective forms. (Thought I misspelled PERISCOPE there for a minute, didnít you?)

Book reviewers have to be very careful in quoting from an authorís work, if the cited pericope is too long, it could technically subject them to copyright infringement charges.
