Pronounced: tromp loi
Notes: No credit for knowing the language this word comes from
The word sedulous means
- involving or accomplished with careful perseverance
- diligent in application or pursuit
The word traces back to the Latin se dolus, literally meaning “without guile”. The two words eventually merged into one, sedulo (sincerely, diligently), which became sedulus in Latin and became our word in English.
This word came into English in the mid-1500s
