Pronounced: LEK-shuhn, noun

Notes: I didn’t know the definition (but I did pronounced it correctly)

Yesterday’s word

The word coriaceous means “of, or like, leather; rough skinned”

First usage

Our word came into English in the mid-1600s

Background / Comments

Our word comes from the Latin word coriāceus (leathern – made of or resembling leather). Apparently, it came pretty much straight from Latin, as there isn’t much of a spelling difference.
