From the same magazine article today ...
Chyron - looks like it should be Greek, mythological, fantastical... something. In a way, it is. It's the scrolled information that runs along the bottom of a television screen ad infinitum on any 24/7 cable news channel. Was used to describe the running commentaries we all carry in our heads, not always to our best interests.
Lambent - softly bright or radiant. Was used to describe the movements of figure skating, as a metaphor for how we imagine things versus how they actually are.
What can I say? Words seek me out!
