Pronounced: EE-koh-toe-pee-uh (alternatively, EK-oh-toe-pee-uh), noun
Notes: I didn’t know the word, but it made sense later
The word espy means “to see at a distance; catch sight of”
This word goes back to the late 1100s or early 1200s
Background / Comments
As I noted yesterday, I might have had the correct meaning, but I thought that the word was pronounced “ES-pee” and couldn’t guess the definition. Our word comes from the Middle English word espyen, which comes from the Old French word espier.
