Pronounced: uh-LOCK-thuh-nuhs, adj

Notes: Quite a mouthful; I didn’t know that there was a word that meant what this word means

Yesterday’s word

The word gemutlich means “cozy; comfortable; pleasant; friendly”

First usage

This word came into English in the mid-1800s

Background / Comments

If you thought that this word looked German, you were right: it comes from the German word gemüetlich (cozy; comfortable; pleasant); the root of this word is Gemüt (nature; mind, soul).
