Funny how current events tend to influence your first glimpse of a word… no?
From a friend:
Isn’t it amazing how one’s name encapsulates one’s peripetatic behavior?
Word of the Day:
verb tr.: To walk about.
From Latin ob- (towards, against) + ambulare (to walk). Ultimately from the Indo-European root ambhi- (around) that is also the source of ambulance, alley, preamble, and bivouac. The first print citation of the word is from 1614.
Think of the real pronunciation as OB-AMBULATE and it will sound more… well.. Latin.
