Entry: hauteur (n.)

In context: "...Krause never so much walking as making an infinite series of grand entrances into pocket after pocket of space, a queenly hauteur now both sickening and awesome..."

Definition:  Loftiness of manner or bearing; haughtiness of demeanour.

Other: A good Scrabble word, since auteur (n.) is also good, and is a pretty Infinite Jest-relevant term.

SNOOT score:  1
