St Andrews in Focus - Issue 91 Nov / Dec 2018

From the Editor

I have learned a delightful new/old word, ‘concinnity’. It’s been around since at least the mid-16th century, so Google tells me – “from Latin concinnitas, from concinnus ‘skillfully put together’” and it means: “The skilful and harmonious arrangement, or fitting together of the different parts of something; also, studied elegance of literary or artistic style.” The bibulous among you will be pleased to know that the Merriam-Webster dictionary further explains that the Romans apparently enjoyed a cocktail called cinnus, that gave rise to the verb concinnare, and so on. Allow me, therefore, to wish you all, wherever you may be, a most concinnitous Christmas and New Year!
