OCT 27, objectionable adjectives: 'estival' and 'hibernal'
Bestival is a best-before-date neologism based on best of all.
In English there are fortunately many nouns that we can use as adjectives when the situation demands. In the opinion of this author, summer(adj.) and winter(adj.) are less cumbersome descriptors than estival and hibernal, despite the opinion of some lexicographers.
