Pronounced: CHAN-suhl (alt: CHAHN-suhl), noun

Notes: I’ve heard about a “chancel choir”, but that didn’t help my understanding

Yesterday’s word

The word brahmin is “a member of the upper class, having wealth, social status, and political power”

First usage

Our word came into English in the late 1400s

Background / Comments

Our word has roots in Hinduism… it came to us from the Sanskrit word brahmin (a member of the priestly class; the highest of the four classes), which came from Brahma, the creator of the universe in Hinduism.
