Pronounced: skuhrl (alternatively, skuhr-uhl), verb

Note: Some people (I’m thinking Caroline Buck or Cindy Haw) might know this word, but it was new to me

Yesterday’s word

The word aggrate means “to please or gratify”


The word comes from Italian aggradare (to please), which itself came from Latin aggratare, having a root of gratus (pleasing or grateful).

First usage

The word showed up in the late 1500s
