Good evening and welcome to Word of the Day! A journey through the English vocabulary and the words that piqued my interest, in WotD we'll be learning a new word for each working day of the week, except for holidays, unless there's a holiday special...

Today's word is:

brouhaha

|ˈbroōhäˌhä; broōˈhähä|

noun [usu. in sing. ]

  • A noisy and overexcited critical response, display of interest, or trail of publicity : 24 members resigned over the brouhaha | all that election brouhaha.

ORIGIN: late 19th cent.: from French, probably imitative.
