Pronounced: SLIH-thee, adj

Notes: You may know this word (I recognized it, but could not properly define it)

Yesterday’s word

The word sororal means “of, relating to, or characteristic of, a sister or sisters; sisterly”

First usage

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).
