Pronounced: ih-KWAN-uh-muss, adj
Notes: I’ve seen the word in reading, but could not properly define it
The word rusticate means “to go to, stay, live in, or sojourn in, the country”
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).
