 We’re finishing our Big Picture zenwords with one that Frank Zappa loved. Check out our new Did You Know? feature to get the full story. 

Crux (kruks) n. The basic, central, or critical point.

The city council agreed the crux of the matter was the rising cost of health care.

Did You Know? – Zappa’s famous quote, The crux of the biscuit is the apostrophe,”came from his classic song Stinkfoot, recorded on the 1974 Apostrophe album. Dweezil Zappa explains its deep philosophical meaning here. Enjoy!

How do you use crux and what’s your favorite Zappa quote?
