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, bar holidays, unless there's a holiday special...

Today's word is:

ORIGIN: late 17th cent.: from Latin esurient- 'being hungry,' from the verb esurire, from esse 'eat.'
