 pleas·ant /ˈplɛzṇt/

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Pleas·ant, n. A wit; a humorist; a buffoon. [Obs.]

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Pleas·ant a.
 1. Pleasing; grateful to the mind or to the senses; agreeable; as, a pleasant journey; pleasant weather.
    Behold, how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!   --Ps. cxxxiii. 1.
 2. Cheerful; enlivening; gay; sprightly; humorous; sportive; as, pleasant company; a pleasant fellow.
    From grave to light, from pleasant to serve.   --Dryden.
 Syn: -- Pleasing; gratifying; agreeable; cheerful; good-humored; enlivening; gay; lively; merry; sportive; humorous; jocose; amusing; witty.
 Usage: -- Pleasant, Pleasing, Agreeable. Agreeable is applied to that which agrees with, or is in harmony with, one's tastes, character, etc. Pleasant and pleasing denote a stronger degree of the agreeable. Pleasant refers rather to the state or condition; pleasing, to the act or effect. Where they are applied to the same object, pleasing is more energetic than pleasant; as, she is always pleasant and always pleasing. The distinction, however, is not radical and not rightly observed.
