#WOTD: Desuetude

Hello fellas! How are you all? :D

Tonight we’ll be talking about a word. It’s #WOTD time!

The word is “desuetude”. Have you ever heard of it, fellas?

The pronunciation is des-wi-tood.

Desuetude means a state of disuse; no longer being used; a state of inactivity.

The earliest documented use of the word desuetude is in 1623.

Example sentence: Those ceremonies had fallen into desuetude. It means that the ceremonies are no longer practiced.

That’s all I can share for today, fellas. Good night!
