Adjective[edit]

vermicular (comparative more vermicular, superlative most vermicular)

  1. Of, pertaining to, or having the form of a worm; vermiculate
    • 1785, Thomas Cowper, The Task
      At length a generation more refined
      Improved the simple plan; made three legs four,
      Gave them a twisted form vermicular,
      And o’er the seat, with plenteous wadding stuff’d,
      Induced a splendid cover, green and blue,
      Yellow and red, of tapestry richly wrought
      And woven close, or needlework sublime.
