August 8, 2012 - Scott Viau
Vertiginous — vur-TIDJ-in-US — describing a sensation of whirling and loss of balance, particularly from looking down from a great height
Example: "An article in the NY Times describing changes in one of the NY boroughs stated that 'to climb the steep, almost vertiginous stairs inside the Delancy Street tenements, now is to find doors open, Chinese style, on every floor.'"
