Pronounced: PUN-dit, noun

Notes: Also written pandit. I’ve run across the word, but wasn’t sure of the definition

Yesterday’s word

The work bibliophobe is someone who is afraid of books (or hates them or fears them)

First usage

I cannot find information about when this word entered English

Background / Comments

Our word was pretty easy to parse: biblio- (book) combined with -phobe (fear). I’ve run across the word bibliophile (a lover of books), but never our word.
