Pronounced: sis-uh-ROE-nee (alt: chich-uh-ROE-nee), noun

Notes: I don’t think I’ve run across this word anywhere

Yesterday’s word

The word inhere means “to belong to something by its very nature; to be an inseparable part of something”

First usage

This word came into English in the mid-1500s

Background / Comments

I didn’t know that this verb existed, but I (and, I suspect many people) are aware of the adjective form: inherent. Our word comes from the Latin word inhaerere (to be attached), which comes from in- (in) and haerere (to stick).
