Intrados is the new word of the day.

Intrados is the new word of the day.

Want to impress your clients use this word the next time you see one of these.  For all you wordsmith’s or for those of you who follow me at new word of the day unless you already know the meaning of this word you’re about to learn something.  This is France in origin (in tra’das) and it means the inside curve or surface of an arch or vault.  Well did you know this word and if so did you know the meaning?

James, when the intrados is especially wide is when those interior curves are really attractive. I'll have to practice that until it feels natural but definitely a good word for real estate.

Hi James,

Looking for a new word? I think you have found it. Here we have a ton of "INTRADOS" in homes and at the front entrances. Good way as you said "to impress your client's"

Have a great day in Rogers, Arkansas.

Best, Clint McKie

Can picture myself telling a client: "What do you think about the amazing finish on the intrados?" and then ducking for cover. Thanks for sharing! Enjoy your day.

And, next time you brush your teeth, don't forget the intrados behind your upper and lower teeth!  You'll feel better afterwards...

Excellent Word of the Day! The next time I'm with a client who thinks they know a lot more than me, I'm going to point out to that intrados and spend about 2-3 minutes on the subject, asking them questions, specifically about that intrados and how does this intrados compare to the last house we saw, etc.

Thanks James for arming me with knowledge!!!
