Background / Comments
I think of our word as similar to “mundane” (at least, the first definition). Our word is another fun/useful word to know and use. The word comes from the Old French word cotidian, which came from Latin quotidianus/cotidianus, which came from quotidie (each day), which came partly from quot (how many).
