Word of the day: lambent

Lambent means softly bright or radiant or dealing lightly and gracefully with a subject or running or moving lightly over a surface.

The adjective seems to be a favourite of the American author Lionel Shriver because she uses it several times in her novel “The Post-Birthday World” which I have just read.
