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:

tidbit

(also chiefly Brit. titbit |ˈtit-|)

noun

  • a small piece of tasty food.
  • a small and particularly interesting item of gossip or information.

ORIGIN: mid 17th cent. (as tyd bit, tid-bit): from dialect tid [tender] (of unknown origin) + bit.
