Pronounced: loosh, adj

Notes: I have a theory about this word (which I didn’t know)

Yesterday’s word

The word irresolute means “uncertain or indecisive”

First usage

Our word came into English in the mid-1500s

Background / Comments

Our word comes from the Latin word in- (not) combined with resoltus, a past participle of resolvere (to resolve). I felt a little stupid when I saw the definition because I knew the word ‘resolute’ and I also know that ir- is a negation prefix. Somehow, I missed it.
