Pronounced: ih-KWAN-uh-muss, adj

Notes: I’ve seen the word in reading, but could not properly define it

Yesterday’s word

The word rusticate means “to go to, stay, live in, or sojourn in, the country”

First usage

Our word came into English in the mid-1600s

Background / Comments

The proper bit of our word to recognize is “rustic”, not “rust” (as I noted yesterday, “rust” is what I saw). Our word comes from the Latin word rūsticātus, the past participle of rūsticārī (to live in the country).
