New word for me: Descry

I added another word to my vocabulary this morning. I love discovering new words as I do my daily crossword puzzles.

I’m not sure if I’ll use this one very much, but one never knows!

descry [dih-skrahy]
verb (used with object), de·scried, de·scry·ing

  1. to see (something unclear or distant) by looking carefully; discern; espy: The lookout descried land.
  2. to discover; perceive; detect.

1250–1300; Middle English descrien < Old French de ( s ) crïer to proclaim, decry.
