Pronounced: SPRACK-guh-fuel, noun

Notes: This is a great word to know

Yesterday’s word

The word sophrosyne means “soundness of mind, as expressed in moderation, self-control, and prudence

First usage

This word goes back to the late 1800s

Background / Comments

The word comes from the Greek word sophrosyne which comes from sophon (of sound mind, prudent). As I noted yesterday, the pronunciation is a bit unusual.
