Pronounced: chi-LAX, verb

Notes: I’ve not heard this word, but you may have

Yesterday’s word

The word ludic means “playful in a pointless, spontanious or aimless way”

First usage

This is another relatively recent word, coming into English in the 1940s

Background / Comments

Finally, we have a word that I didn’t feel guilty about not being able to figure out the word after reading the origin information! One example of our word is the way kittens play, or perhaps children at recess. The word comes from the stem of the Latin word lūdere (to play); specifically, lud- with the adjectival ending -ic.
