panegyric

Pronounced: pan-ih-JIR-ick (alt: pan-ih-JAYE-rick), noun

Notes: I’ve run across this word, but couldn’t define it well


Yesterday’s word

The word chunter means “to mutter, grumble, or chatter”

First usage

Our word came into English in the late 1500s

Background / Comments

Our word is considered an imitative word – saying “chunter” several times run together in a low voice can sound like muttering.
