The word sororal means “of, relating to, or characteristic of, a sister or sisters; sisterly”
Our word came into English in the mid-1600s
Background / Comments
When I saw this word, I thought of ‘sorrel’ and thought it may be related to horses somehow. After I saw the definition, I realized that the same basis is used for ‘sorority’, and I certainly should have been able to figure out the definition. Our word comes from the Latin word soror (sister).
