#WOTD: Condolence

Good evening, fellas!

Tonight’s session will talk about the word condolence. A bit gloomy, yes, but I do hope you had a nice day, anyway.

Let’s start the session with an example of using the word condolence:

Mr. President offers his condolences to the family of the late J. S. Badudu.

Condolence means “sympathy that you feel for somebody when a person in their family or that they know well has died” or “an expression of this sympathy”.

Condolence is a noun.

Condolence first used in the early 17th century (condole).Condolence is derived from a Latin word “Condolere” with “Con” means “with” and “Dolere” means “grieve/suffer”. The word was also influenced by French word “Condoleance”.

That’s all I can share, fellas. I hope it’s useful.

Good night!
