Notes: I don’t think I’ve run across this word before
The word hymeneal means, as an adjective “relating to a wedding or marriage”. As a noun, it means “a wedding song or poem”.
This word came into English in the early 1600s
Background / Comments
This word derives from the Greek god of marriage, Hymen. Many weddings I have been to have had songs; I don’t remember one that had a poem. However, either could have been called a hymeneal.
I ran across the word timorous, but I could define the word pretty accurately, so I declined to us it. I think I recognized part of the word from language classes.
