Entry: superjacent (adj.)

In context: "Pemulis, Troeltsch, and Schacht's triple-room is in subdorm B in the back north part of the second floor of West House and so superjacent to the Dining Hall, from which through the floor Pemulis can hear voices and silverware and can exactly what they're having."

Definition:   Lying above or upon something else; overlying, superincumbent.

Other: Nertz.  I thought I had the week scheduled, but missed a couple of days, so here you go: a whole bunch of entries at once.
