I have been feeling under the weather the last few days. When you are sick you don’t always remember what day it is or what is on your to-do list for the day. So I’m here on Tuesday with your Monday word of the week. 🙂
I ran across the word miasma this week and although I was pretty sure I knew what it meant, it occurred to me that this was not a very common word and that there may be a lot of people who don’t know what it means.
noun (plural miasmas)
mid 17th century: from Greek, literally ‘defilement’, from miainein ‘pollute’
I was reading a book that used the word to describe something foul and evil and nasty. It is a word you find in horror novels or science fiction/fantasy novels; where there is a good vs evil theme going on. It’s not used so much in everyday conversation. I challenge you to find a way to use Miasma this week.
