Pronounced: PASS-uhl, noun

Notes: I think I’ve run across this word, but I could not define it

Yesterday’s word

The word ergophobia means “an abnormal fear or aversion to work”

First usage

This word goes back to the early 1900s

Background / Comments

This word comes from Greek words; you probably recognized phobia (fear). The other word is ergon (work). I can’t say that I know anyone who is afraid of work; however, there are people who have an aversion to work.
