> Is insipient a word? I think the word you have in mind is "insipid"
Nope. It's insipient, a real word:
In*sip"i*ent (?), a. [L. insipiens; pref. in- not + sapiens wise.]
Wanting wisdom; stupid; foolish. [R.] Clarendon. -- n. An insipient
person. [R.] Fryth.
Insipid, OTOH, is from L. in + sapidus, meaning unsavory.
