“A Word a Day” is an email service that comes every day to subscribers all over the world to help them build vocabulary. Recently, the word of the day was lachrymal and to give an example of usage, Rathor’s book was quoted! See below. How cool is that?! Rathor joins New York Times bestsellers among other distinguished authors who’ve received this nod.
adjective: Relating to or inducing tears.
From Latin lacrima (tear). Earliest documented use: 1541.
“She wiped his tears with the edge of her garment, but that made him more lachrymal.” Udai Rathor; Kojia, the Ugly; Strategic Book Publishing; 2012.
