Litotes popped into my waking head today.
I knew I knew the word,
But, I had no idea what it means.
A figure of speech long forgotten.
So I Googled it as you do,
for a clue.
To a quiz I had accidentally entered.
Google told me,
it means “simple” in Greek.
But it’s still Greek to me.
The Oxford English Dictionary explained:-
it’s a double negative
which is really a positive.
So that’s it then !
Clear as a bell !
