Today’s Word “limn”

limn LIM (transitive verb) – 1 : To depict by drawing or painting. 2 : To portray in words; to describe.

“…Her excellent memory could not limn her lover’s features clearly; she had to reread his love letters to be sure that in truth he had existed, that they had loved one another and that the nights in the room of the armoires were not her invention.” — Isabel Allende, ‘Daughter of Fortune’

Limn is from Middle English limnen, alteration of luminen, from enluminen, from Medieval French enluminer, from Late Latin illuminare, “to illuminate,” ultimately from Latin lumen, “light.”
