Notes: I don’t think I’ve every run across this word (aside from vocabulary lists)

Yesterday’s word

The word reify means “to convert something abstract into a concrete thing; to make a thought or wish into an action or object” – I think of it as “to make real”

This word came into English in the mid-1800s

Background / Comments

The word comes from Latin rēs (thing) combined with -ify (an intensification suffix)
