APROPOS (_comparative_ MORE APROPOS, _superlative_ MOST APROPOS) * Of an appropriate or pertinent nature. * 1877, Jules Verne, translated by Frederick Amadeus Malleson, _Journey into the Interior of the Earth_, Chapter VI, Nothing easier. I received not long ago a map from my friend, Augustus Petermann, at Leipzig. Nothing could be more APROPOS. * by the way, incidental. * 1877, Arthur Conan Doyle, _A Study in Scarlet_ Sherlock Holmes rose and lit his pipe. "No doubt you think that you are complimenting me in comparing me to Dupin," he observed. "Now, in my opinion, Dupin was a very inferior fellow. That trick of his of breaking in on his friends' thoughts with an APROPOS remark after a quarter of an hour's silence is really very showy and superficial. He had some analytical genius, no doubt; but he was by no means such a phenomenon as Poe appeared to imagine." SYNONYMS * (by the way): by the way, incidentally, incidental TRANSLATIONS
