Pronounced: PAN-suh-fee, noun

Notes: I didn’t know the word, but I should have been able to work it out

Yesterday’s word

The word effable means “capable of being expressed”

First usage

Our word came into English in the mid-1600s

Background / Comments

The more common is ineffable; I was aware of that word, but not its meaning, so I couldn’t guess at our word’s meaning. Our word comes from the Latin word fari (to speak).
