Carapace is the new word of the day.
Don’t know about you but I’ve had people do this. Haven’t had it happen lately but tomorrow is another day. Have you ever talked to people and they seem to do this? Oh I guess you would want to know the meaning of the word before you answered. So the meaning of (kar’e pas’) is a protective covering over all or part of the back of certain animals, as the upper shell of the turtle, armadillo, crab, etc. So have you ever had a conversation with a person only to be sure they have pulled their head into their shell and shut you out? What say you?
