#WordOfTheDay – This is what Senectitude means

Medieval (2)

Hey Sparkle Writers, our word for today is pretty simple – ‘Senectitude’.

The word looks really serious but it is not as serious as it looks.

First, it is pronounced this way [si-NEK-ti-tood]. It sure does sound nice, doesn’t it?

It is a noun meaning old age (We told you it was not that serious).

The origin of the word is from the Latin word ‘senectus’ meaning old.

Examples:

Senectitude comes with its own fair share of problems.

It is high time people embraced the reality of senectitude.
