Word of the Day: rain

Posted by

It may be raining outside, but don’t confuse precipitation with words that sound similar. If reign is spelled with this way, it’s a period of time marked by a political or military leader, or the authority asserted by that person. This reign comes from the Latin regnum, meaning “realm” or “kingship.” You may recognize regnum from the English interregnum. Interregnum is the period of intermission in an otherwise continuous span of time. But historically, an interregnum was the lapse of time between regimes. A ruler might be forced to vacate his throne if the people wanted to rein in his power. This rein, though, drops the G. It was once the strap that a horseback traveler uses to control his ride.
