Word: fragile / delicate



This stick is so fragile that even a Ferengi child can snap it in two. (stative verb)

  1. Although we already have HItlh for brittle such that the item fragments into many pieces, I hope for a distinct word for something "delicate" that is "fragile" but does not shatter.

    1. I think this logic is quite sound. A clockwork mechanism is made of metal, so it is not {HItlh} "brittle", but it is delicate, since one gear out of place causes it to malfunction.
