Word of the day: regnant

The word of the day is regnant:
  1. reigning; ruling (usually used following the noun it modifies)
  2. exercising authority, rule, or influence.
  3. prevalent; widespread.

"Though the term is only used three times in the full body of his work, the invisible hand has become the regnant image of Smith’s philosophy."
