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:
- (esp. in prehistoric times) a person who lived in a cave.
- A hermit.
- A person who is regarded as being deliberately ignorant or old-fashioned.
ORIGIN: late 15th cent.: via Latin from Greek trōglodutēs, alteration of the name of an Ethiopian people, influenced by trōglē 'hole.'
