Pronounced: LIH-krish (alt LIK-kuh-rish), adj

Notes: Not what I thought

Yesterday’s word

The word monophobia means (as you may have figured out) “fear of being alone”

First usage

The word came into being in the late 1800s

Background / Comments

The word comes from two pretty well-known Greek words: mono- (one) and -phobia (fear). This sounds like a pretty terrible phobia, as most people are alone at some point in their lives.
