Wednesday Winner: Saxicoline

Today’s Word of the Day was chosen by Johnny N. of Ottawa, Canada who said it was an “unusual” word he learned back when he was about ten years old:  “It was used by a presenter at a symposium I had attended and I had to go and ask him afterwards what it meant.”

Saxicoline means “living or growing among rocks.”
