Notes: Okay; it’s a fear of something, but what?
The word succus means “juice; fluid”
Our word came into English in the mid-1700s
Background / Comments
As I noted, I didn’t know this word, but I did know (and I suppose most of you know) the word ‘succulent’, which is an adjective of our word, and originally meant “juicy” (it has acquired other meanings). Our word comes from the Latin word succus (juice).
