Pronounced: SAT-uhs-fys, verb

Notes: An interesting word and useful

Yesterday’s word

The word frigorific means “causing cold; chilling”

First usage

This word came into English in the mid-1600s

Background / Comments

Once I knew the definition, it seems obvious. The word comes from Latin frigorificus, the adjective form of frigus (frost, cold). This Latin root is related to the source for “frigid”, which you may have seen in the definition. Our word is deemed relatively unusual.
