Pronounced: broh-MID-ick, adj

Notes: Another useful word to learn


Yesterday’s word

The word sparge means, as a verb, “to scatter or sprinkle”. As a noun, it means “a sprinkling”

First usage

Our word came into English in the mid-1500s

Background / Comments

Our word is a nice alternative to sprinkle; I hope I remember to use it. It comes from the Latin word spargere (to sprinkle; to scatter).
