Pronounced: aye-SON-uh-mee, noun

Notes: I recognized parts of the word, but I couldn’t define it


Yesterday’s word

The word breviloquence means “speaking briefly and concisely”

First usage

This word came into English in the mid-1600s

Background / Comments

Our word comes from the Latin word breviloquentia, which comes from brevis (short) and loquentia (speaking). You would get the word right if you saw the words “brevity” and “loquaciousness” in our word.
