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 are:
adjective ( cliquier , cliquiest )
(of a group or place) tending to form or hold exclusive groups and so not welcoming to outsiders: a cliquey school.
(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.'
