Pronounced: RIH-full, noun
Notes: I ran across this word in reading
The word skeuomorph means “a design on an object that has been copied as an imitation of an older design”
This word came into English in the late 1800s
Background / Comments
Our word comes from the Greek word skeûos (vessel, implement) combined with -morphos (shape, form structure). Apparently, the original meaning had to do with marks made on modern pottery in an imitation of marks on ancient pottery.
