Pronounced: ek-TAHJ-uh-nuhs, adj
Notes: I keep wanting to put the accent on the third syllable instead of the second
A turophile is “a cheese fancier”
The term goes back to the 1930s, but became popular in the 1950s
Background / Comments
As you may have guessed from the -phile ending, this word is from Greek. It is a combination of tyros (cheese) plus -philos (loving). This word fits me, as I like cheese.
