mediocracy

Pronounced: mee-dee-AHK-ruh-see, noun

Notes: I saw “media” in this word… and I was wrong (you probably know what it means)


Yesterday’s word

The word lacustrine means “of, or related to, a lake”

First usage

This word came into English in the early 1800s

Background / Comments

What a great word! I hope to have chances to drop it into conversations. The word comes from the Italian word lacustre (of lakes), combined with -ine.
