Pronounced: suh-RAN, noun

Notes: Neat word (but I didn’t know it)

Yesterday’s word

The word purblind means

  • partially blind
  • lacking in understanding, insight, or vision
First usage

Our word came into English in the early 1300s

Background / Comments

I find the background to our word interesting: it is a combination of pure and blind — meaning completely blind. Over time, the sense shifted meaning to our meaning.
