Pronounced: GAS-truh-nome, noun

Notes: I was pretty close to this definition

Yesterday’s word

The word premiate means “to grant a prize or give an award to”

First usage

This word came into English in the mid-1500s

Background / Comments

This word comes from the medieval Latin word praemiātus, which is the past participle of praemiāre (to reward). I’ve not come across this word, but it seems pretty useful.
