Pronounced: MUH-rau-ski, noun

Notes: I’ve not run across this word, but you probably know its synonym

Yesterday’s word

The word abrade means “to scrape off or to wear off or down by scraping or rubbing”

First usage

Our word came into English in the mid- to late 1600s

Background / Comments

I think I’ve run across this word – it certainly has a good, useful meaning. Once again, we look to Latin; our word comes from the Latin word abrādere (to scrape away from), which comes from ab- (away from) and rādere (to scrape).
