Word of the Day: bonhomie

Sunday, February 02, 2020

Word of the Day from Merriam Webster Dictionary, Jan 21, 2020

bonhomie: noun

Definition:
good-natured easy friendliness


DID YOU KNOW?
English speakers borrowed bonhomie from French, where the word was created from bonhomme, which means "good-natured man" and is itself a composite of two other French words: bon, meaning "good," and homme, meaning "man." That French compound traces to two Latin terms, bonus (meaning "good") and homo (meaning either "man" or "human being"). English speakers have warmly embraced bonhomie and its meaning, but we have also anglicized the pronunciation in a way that may make native French speakers cringe. (We hope they will be good-natured about it!)
