trangam

Pronounced: TRANG-uhm, noun

Notes: I have several of these at home (you may, too), but I didn’t know this word


Yesterday’s word

The word sectile means “capable of being cut smoothly with a knife”

First usage

Our word came into English in the early 1700s

Background / Comments

As I noted yesterday, this word is useful. Our word comes from the Latin word sectilis (cuttable).
