Word of the day: qualia

The word of the day is qualia:
  1. a quality, as bitterness, regarded as an independent object.
  2. a sense-datum or feeling having a distinctive quality.

"If I say fir and fescue
and clover and lover
whither identity and qualia?"

 - Maureen M. McLane, "Mz N Enough", Spring 2016 The American Scholar (
