Pronounced: KOM-uh-nate, verb
Notes: My guess at the meaning was way off
The word afflated means “having inspiration; inspired”
Our word came into English in the mid-1800s
Background / Comments
Our word comes from the obsolete verb afflate (to inspire), which came from the Latin word afflātus, which is the past participle of afflāre (to breathe upon), from af- (towards) and flāre (to blow). I find it interesting that we still have afflated, but afflate is obsolete.
