Pronounced: DEE-d(uh)l, adj (the ‘uh’ is very lightly pronounced; almost non-existent)

Notes: I didn’t know this word

Yesterday’s word

The word emesis means “the act of process of vomiting”

First usage

This word came into English in the late 1800s

Background / Comments

The word comes from the Greek word emein (to vomit). As I noted yesterday, there are many slang words for emesis.
