Word Wednesday- November 13, 2013- Puerile

Standard

Today’s word is PUERILE. It means childishly silly and trivial. I’ve had to deal with some of those kinds of folks this week so it was a good choice to use- at least in my corner of the world. Immature people make me crazy.

It comes from the French pueril or Latin puerilis, from puer which is boy. In Spanish it is pertaining to childhood.
