Pronounced: MIM-zee, adj

Notes: I guess I’ve seen this word, but I don’t remember it

Yesterday’s word

The word telluric means “coming out of, or proceeding from, the soil or earth”

First usage

The word came into English in the mid-1800s

Background / Comments

Our word comes from the Latin word tellūr, which is the stem of tellūs (earth). In hindsight, I should have recognized the root and deduced the meaning of the word.
