Visual Thesaurus Word of the Day
Monday, March 27th constituency We the People Word of the Day:
This noun dates only from the 19th century, as a natural outgrowth of the much older constituent. Constituency was originally and still is a group of constituents, but it also — especially in British English — designates the area they live in. Lurking behind both words, as well as behind constitution, is Latin constituere, "set up, found."
