Illustration for article titled Word of the Day: i Insalubrious/i

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:



adjective formal

  • (esp. of a climate or locality) not salubrious; unhealthy.

ORIGIN: mid 17th cent.: from Latin insalubris (from in- 'not' + salubris 'salubrious' ) + -ous.

So... a couple of you guys pointed out that you didn't know the meaning of the word (insalubrious) when it appeared in one of yesterday's meanings of the word flit, o there ya have it ^^;
