Pronounced: FESS-tuh-nate, adj
Notes: Another interesting word that I didn’t know
The word gerent means “a ruler or manager”
The word came into English in the late 1500s
Background / Comments
Our word comes from the Latin word gerent, which is the present participle of gerere (to manage). As I noted yesterday, I’m not sure why this word for ‘manager’ isn’t more widely used.
