propaedeutic

Pronounced: proh-pih-DUE-tit, noun

Notes: I think I see bits of other words in here (Sorry this was late in getting posted-RL).


Yesterday’s word

The word pathophobia is “fear of disease”

Background / Comments

It’s Greek all the way: patho- (suffering, disease) with -phobia (fear). I figured this one out because I knew pathology (the study of diseases).

First used

This word first showed up in the late middle 1800s
