solidus

Pronounced: SAH-luh-duhs, noun

Notes: This is a fancy word for something; I know a different fancy word for it, but not this one


Yesterday’s word

The word contund means “to thrash or bruise”

Background / Comments

I should have seen the similarity to contusion and been able to guess at the meaning. Our word comes from Latin con- (with) and tundere (to beat).

First usage

This word started being used in the late 1500s
