    This would be much more fun if you also add how to pronounce: /məˈliflo͞oəs/
    Because many of us don't have English as the first language and would not know how to read it correctly.
    Or even add the recorded version would be even better.

    These are scary. I would not like to use them in an article unless I am impressing a buyer to give me gigs based on my sophisticated writing.

    Nope, it's never counter-productive to expand your vocabulary.

    Thanks for contributing to the thread. :)

    I'd like to make a contribution.


    vestigial
    adjective
    /vesˈtɪdʒ.i.əl/

    being a small remaining part or amount
    In medical terminology, often used to describe something, especially a part of the body, that has not developed completely, or has stopped being used and has almost disappeared, commonly used when talking about evolution


    Use: 1. Later, colonial laws prohibited even speaking the Pequot language, now long dead but for a few vestigial words.
    2. Kiwis lack an external tail, and their vestigial wings are entirely hidden beneath a curious plumage—shaggy, more like fur than feathers.




    My good friend is a creationist. In college he was debating a biology student, saying how evolution didn't occur, hence all so-called 'vestigial' organs are a part of intelligent design. The biology guy then got all mad and said my friend had a vestigial brain.. ouch.. rude
