Tuesday, May 23rd extricate It's Complicated Word of the Day:
A trio of modern English words all evolved from the Latin root tricae, meaning complications or trifles. There's this one, a verb meaning "release from difficulties," which everyone agrees is a good thing. When this is not possible, there's the adjective inextricable. The third member, which may not come to mind because of the morphed vowel, is the adjective intricate.
