Definition of discerpible in English:


Pronunciation /dɪˈsəːpɪbl/


  • Discerptible.

    In later use chiefly with reference to the works of Henry More and his contemporaries.


Mid 17th century; earliest use found in Henry More (1614–1687), philosopher, poet, and theologian. Either from post-classical Latin discerpibilis (also used by Henry More, but apparently first attested later than the English word: 1668 or earlier) from classical Latin discerpere + -bilis.
