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:

ORIGIN: early 17th cent.: from Latin plagiarius 'kidnapper' (from plagium 'a kidnapping,' from Greek plagion) + -ism .
