Pronounced: deh-nih-GAY-shun, noun

Notes: A simpler definition that I thought

Yesterday’s word

The word paries is “a wall of a body part or cavity”

First usage

Our word came into English in the late 1600s

Background / Comments

I cannot recall ever running across this word; however, it is related to the word “parietal”, which I have heard in some mystery stories (I think “parietal lobe”). Anyway, our word comes from the Latin word paries (wall).
