Pronounced: darg, noun

Notes: I’ve never run across this word, but it is considered “informal”

Yesterday’s word

The word adoral means “located toward the side or end where the mouth is located” (it usually used with animals which don’t have clear upper and lower sides)

First usage

This word came into English in the mid-1800s

Background / Comments

This word is one that I probably could have parsed better, had I not been so distracted by “ador”, which looked like a part of “adore”. Actually, the correct parsing is ad- (toward) combined with oral (relating to the mouth). The word oral comes from the Latin word os (mouth).
