Pronounced: POL-ih-tick, verb

Notes: You probably know this word; I’ll talk more about tomorrow

Yesterday’s word

The word meta means “of, or related to, a story, play, film or character that consciously references its own subject”

First usage

This may be the most recent word; the reference material says it came into usage in the 2010s, but I thought I’d heard it before that time.

Background / Comments

Our word simply comes from the Greek prefix meta- (with). In Old English, it was mid (gives an interesting understand of “midwife”, eh?); in German, it is (was?) mit; in Gothic, it was mith.
