(adj) cutting, sharp. Origin: L in-, into + cidere, to cut The teeth in the front of your mouth, used for cutting or gnawing, are called incisors. To talk of someone's incisive mind is to compliment him on his sharpness. An incisive report is one that has penetrated into the heart of a subject and has sharp and clear expression. Any act of incising can be called an incision, but the word is usually used for the specific context of cutting of or into body tissues or organs (especially by a surgeon).
