Pronounced: dee-guh-STAY-shuhn, noun

Notes: This word does not mean what I thought it might

Yesterday’s word

The word crinose means “hairy”

First usage

I cannot find when this word showed up in English; I’ve tried several web sites, but no one has this information.

Background / Comments

I like having alternate words for common things; I hope I find some occasion to introduce our word into conversation. Our word comes from the Latin word crīnis (hair) with -ose (full of; abounding in).
