Notes: A neat word for something… it would be neat to find uses for this word


Yesterday’s word

The word lateritious means “resembling, made of, or the color of bricks”

First usage

This word came into English in the mid-1600s

Background / Comments

As I noted yesterday, I had no idea that there was a word for brick-colored. Our word comes from the Latin word later (brick).
