(is that a wordnik word?)

Yes, thank you, Blafferty. diaphonon carries the meaning of something different than diaphonous, an adjective describing a quality of transparency. It also means something different from diaphane, which refers to transparent sheeting or fine silk. A diaphonon (n) is an object. A transparent cloud is a diaphonon. The lens of an eye is a diaphonon. Clear glass is diaphonic, ergo; a piece of glass is a diaphonon. Historically, the word and its usage goes back to the day before yesterday. Wally Weet

WallyWeet would like to contribute a word not found: diaphonon. A diaphonon is a wispy almost transparent thing like a cloud passing in front of a full moon revealing the moon then disappearing from the sky as it floats by.

What we usually do when there's a word missing is do a wordnik search for it, then put our definition in the comments (discuss) section. This makes it a searchable word.
