Today's English

Aporetic: adj. Tending to doubt.
Synonyms= cagey, cynical, doubting, incredulous, leery.
In philosophy, an aporia is a philosophical puzzle or state of puzzlement.

''To see the above uncertainty regarding the relative primacy of ordinary language over poetic language (or vice versa), as Perloff does, is to accept this uncertainty as constitutive of the inherently aporetic nature of language, particularly semantics.''
