As a writer it’s important I have a large vocabulary, so I’ve decided to read through the dictionary. To keep me accountable, I will post my favorite words from each dictionary page. Definitions come from Webster’s New World Dictionary of American English, Third College Edition, 1988.
Let’s start with a root word and grow our vocabulary from there.
Accouterment or accoutrement are just cool sounding words (because they’re French) for a personal outfit, clothes, or dress. Skipping to the end of the etymology (or really the beginning but it’s the end of the listing) you get the Latin words con- (together) and suere (sew).
