Of high value or cost

It's a word that sounds sort of like precocious.

Please help, this has been annoying me all morning.

Precious? Premium?

Prize worthy? Purified?

Nope, none of those.

I'm starting to wonder if I made this word up confused

It's a word that would be used in financial/legal settings.

Just make up a new word then, Shakespeare did loads of that grin

Vipermisnomer Sat 06-Aug-16 12:53:49

Also if legal then possibly Latin not English?

Prestigious? Prosperous?

Vipermisnomer Sat 06-Aug-16 12:58:50

Any of these?

pecuniary relating to or involving money

propitious presenting favourable circumstances

prosperity the condition of having good fortune

puissant powerful

Nothing more frustrating than trying to remember a word! Happens to me a lot.

Viper I could kiss you!

My morning has been ruined by trying to remember this ruddy word. It's not in any of my dictionaries and I couldn't find it online angry

Now I can finish my report because of course I couldn't continue with it until I remembered the word so it has been on hold for 5 hours hmm

brewcakeflowerschocolate to all, thank you for your help smile

Vipermisnomer Sat 06-Aug-16 14:19:18

Cake will suffice, my work here is done.

Well I learnt a new word today. Mmm, that new-word smell.

toadgirl Sat 06-Aug-16 15:34:39

Wow, what a word!!!!

I've never heard of it. I do love to learn new words smile

That is one great word. Pretiosus. I'm going to work out a way I can use it in every day conversation before the day is up.

PhwoarGras Sat 06-Aug-16 17:36:11

grin it's a good one isn't it. I've noticed it used lots in the legal world. Usually casually dropped into a sentence by people who probably wouldn't know how to spell it.

I'm now finding Viper's link useful too smile I don't care if you try to reject my kisses, you're getting them! Made my Saturday slightly easier (apart from the 5 hours I spent stalling).
