(pronounced PIH-thee)

The pithy little word of “pith” reflects its definition. The noun “pith” means the core or essential part of something. Hence, the adjective “pithy” means substantive, but succinct and concise in message.

Example: In the annual job evaluation that tended to tie Joey’s stomach in knots, his curmudgeonly boss actually concluded the meeting with a positive, albeit pithy, overall review.
