The band Camera Obscura was described as “dulcet” by Morning Becomes Eclectic. Since it’s been a while since I increased everyone’s vocabulary, I thought I’d post it.
dulcet – adjective
1. pleasant to the ear; melodious
2. pleasant or agreeable to the eye or the feelings; soothing
Scholars of romance languages will guess the etymology:
Alteration (influenced by Latin dulcis), of Middle English doucet from Old French, diminutive of douce feminine of doux (sweet) from Latin dulcis.
