Wednesday Word: Plenipotentiary

Plenipotentiary - noun or adjective.

If you like big fancy words, plenipotentiary fits the bill!

As a noun, plenipotentiary refers to a person, usually a diplomat, who possesses the full power of their home country and can act independently on their government's behalf. Usually plenipotentiaries reside in a country different from their own.

As an adjective, plenipotentiary refers to having these powers.
