Monday, June 17th putrefy What's That Smell? Word of the Day:
All living things are subject to decay, and if your olfactory sense is working, you'll have evidence of this when things start to turn. The native English verb for this inevitable process is rot. The Latinate one is putrefy. It has a handful of easy-to-spot relatives: putrid, putrefaction, and the rather colorful putrescent.
