Here's a new word.

taciturn \TAS-uh-turn\, adjective:
Habitually silent; not inclined to talk.


A balding, stocky, taciturn man who wore glasses, he gave an impression of distance and seriousness.
-- "Diana's Driver: Unsettling Piece in a Puzzle", New York Times, September 21, 1997


Taciturn comes from Latin taciturnus, from tacere, "to be silent."



I can be taciturn in a crowd of strangers........
