Pronounced: pro-nun-see-uh-MEN-toe, noun
Notes: You can probably guess at the meaning of this word (I didn’t know this was a word)
The word nidificate means “to build a nest”
Our word came into English in the early 1800s
Background / Comments
Our word came from the Latin word nīdificātus, the past participle of nīdificāre (to build a nest). I’ve always used the phrase “the birds are building a nest in our eaves”; I can simplify(?) this to “the birds are nidificating in our eaves”.
