wrong word

Post by Starstryker » Mon Dec 24, 2007 9:42 pm

Hello, I recently started reading the series over again and have noticed something. In book 4, and I downloaded the books for when my connection quits so don't know the name. When tarrin is referring to the shaKar dresses and other things, I thing fel is using the wrong word when he uses opaque. My understanding is that opacity is the degree of not being able to see through something while what I think he's trying to get through is either translucent, or transparency. Which denotes degrees to which light and objects can be seen through and object, such as frosted tupperware,( think rubbermaid) would be described as being translucent, while glass is transparent. Just wanted to point this out.
