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
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).
This word started being used in the late 1500s
