Wednesday's learn and earn...


congeries • \KAHN-juh-reez\ • noun
: aggregation, collection

Example Sentence: As we walked past the food stalls our nostrils were assailed by a congeries of exotic, unfamiliar smells.

Did you know? What do "epitome," "circus," "tribunal," and "congeries" have in common? All are part of a relatively small collection of English nouns that made the transition from Latin to English unaltered in both spelling and meaning. "Congeries" joined this group in our language in the early 1600s. Latin "congeries" comes from the Latin verb "congerere," which means "to carry or bring together" and which is also the source of our word "congest." In English, "congeries" stands out because it is a singular word with a plural appearance -- and its plural is also spelled "congeries."

I love to read your comments, but due to spamming I have had to turn on the word verification again. Sorry for the extra step.
