Pronounced: LISS-it, adj

Notes: You probably know this definition, but I didn’t know this word existed

Yesterday’s word

The word sodality means

  • fellowship; comradeship
  • an association or society
First usage

Our word came into English in the late 1500s

Background / Comments

As I mentioned, I just see “soda” in this word. If I don’t pay close attention, I can almost see “solidarity”, which is a bit closer in meaning. Our word comes from the Latin word sodālitās (companionship), which traces to sodālis (companion).
