Visual Thesaurus Word of the Day
Wednesday, May 22nd culvert Water Down Below Word of the Day:
Next time you drive over a watercourse that is conveniently diverted beneath the roadway, give some thought to today's word, and the fact that its origin is completely obscure. Culverts have been making roadways passable since the late 18th century, but etymologists are baffled as to the word's origin; some speculate that it may be an English dialect word, others point to French origins.
