Quitessential

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: kwit-uh-sen-shuhl

Sentence: Marsha assumed that the owner's manual had a typo when it described her new computer as quitessential. Not so. All too often, when she was at a crucial juncture in a tabulation, it would just quit. She wouldn't even get the dreaded blue screen, just a few Chinese-looking Kanji characters and a shutdown. When she had the characters translated, they said "I have a headache, goodnight". So much for buying a cheap PC from the back of a van.

Etymology: quit (of the pure and essential essence of something) + essential (absolutely necessary; indispensable)
