Pronounced: SOO-suh-rate, verb
Notes: I don’t think this word is well known, but I have run across it
The word nonesuch means “a person or thing without equal; paragon”
Our word came into usage in the late 1500s
Background / Comments
Our word is a combination of none and such. As I noted yesterday, I thought our word was an adjective meaning “unique” (as in “nonesuch ruler”). I’m not sure where I picked up this misapprehension.
