zetetic

Pronounced: zuh-TET-ick, adj/noun

Notes: An interesting word; I don’t think I’ve run across it


Yesterday’s word

The word stelliferous means “abounding or full with stars”

First usage

This word came into English in the late 1500s

Background / Comments

You did better than I if you saw “stellar” in the word. Our word comes from the Latin word stellifer (star-bearing), which comes from stella (star) and -fer; the -ous added makes it an adjective.
