majuscule \ˈma-jəs-ˌkyül, mə-ˈjəs-\ noun: a large letter (as a capital)

Etymology: French, from Latin majusculus rather large, diminutive of major

A miniscule is a lowercase letter, but we also use the word as an adjective to refer to something very small. It’s too bad majuscule hasn’t been adopted as an adjective for things very large.
