Pronounced: REK-uhn-dite (alt: rih-KON-dite), adj

Notes: The word is familiar to me (meaning I’ve read it more than once), but I couldn’t define it

Yesterday’s word

The word ovine means “of, relating to, or resembling, sheep”

First usage

This word came into English in the late 1600s

Background / Comments

This word is ‘bovine’ with the ‘b’ missing. Bovine has to do with cattle instead of our word, which is has to do with sheep. This word comes from the Latin word ovis (sheep).
