  • Dontcry has been described as this (see teeth), but in which of the five senses listed by Wordnet?

  • This word does not have the definition that it must, and therefore I will redefine it thus: interesting by virtue of texture, having a (or multiple layers of) teeth-massaging texture, interestingly and mysteriously detailed. I want this word to be attached, as I find it to be, to items that are delicious particularly because of their texture as experienced by the teeth, like the tough-crunch to smooth-melt of creme brulet or the gritty soft twisty melting web of cotton candy. It should extend to conversations and other non-food things that are interesting and enjoyable because of their many layers and delicious turns and nuances. And so it is!
