Pronounced: ihm-PAHL-ih-tic, adj

Notes: I’ve run across this word several times, but didn’t have a good grasp of the meaning

Yesterday’s word

The word niveous means “snowy or resembling snow”

First usage

The word came into English in the early 1600s

Background / Comments

Our word comes from the Latin word niveus, from nix (snow). I can see the root of the Spanish word for snow (nieve).
