This week's theme: miscellaneous words.
compossible (kom-POS-uh-buhl) adjective
Compatible; possible along with something else.
[From Latin com- (with) + possibilis (that may be done), from posse (to be able). Ultimately from the Indo-European root poti- (powerful, lord) that is also the source of power, potent, possess, and pasha.]
"I also argue that the presence of compossible options is a precondition
of political toleration."
The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been. -Madeleine L'Engle, writer (1918-2007)
