vitiate

Pronounced: VIH-she-ate, verb

Notes: I knew one of the three definitions; how about you?


Yesterday’s word

The word corpocracy means

  • corporate bureaucracy
  • a society in which corporations control the government
First usage

This word came into English in the 1930s

Background / Comments

Our word originally referred to the first definition; however, it has changed (or expanded) to the second definition. One reference doesn’t even list the first definition. Anyway, the word is formed by combining (corp)oration with bureau(cracy).
