eudemonic

Pronunciation: you-dih-MON-ick, adj

Notes: When I attempted to parse this word, I saw eu- (good) parsed with “demonic”, so this didn’t make any sense


Yesterday’s word

The word endogenous means “originating from within”

First usage

This word came into English in the mid-1800s

Background / Comments

Our word comes from the Greek word endo- (inside; within) combined with -genous (producing).
