Pronounced: ee-DEN-chuh-luhs, adj
Notes: A more fancy word for a word we know better
The word mondain, as a noun, is “a sophisticated man; a man belonging to fashionable society”. As an adjective, it means “wordly, fashionable”
This word came into English in the mid-1800s
Background / Comments
The word came from the French word mondain (socialite); this came from the Latin word mundus (world). As I noted yesterday, this word sounds very close to ‘mundane’ (a word I’ve known since grade school); I’m pretty sure that mundane also has the same Latin word for its root.
