Pronounced: PURR-blind, adj

Notes: You may know this word; I found the background interesting

Yesterday’s word

The word anatine means “resembling a duck, swan, or goose; a member of this family of birds, the Anatidae

First usage

Our word came into English in the mid-1800s

Background / Comments

It it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it must be anatine, eh? Our word came from the Latin word anatinus (of, or pertaining to, a duck), which has the root of anat- (duck).
