Word of the Day: Gustatory

Friday, February 14, 2020

Word of the Day from Merriam Webster Dictionary, Feb 13, 2020

gustatory: adjective

Definition:
Relating to or associated with eating or the sense of taste



DID YOU KNOW?
Gustatory is a member of a finite set of words that describe the senses with which we encounter our world, the other members being visual, aural, olfactory
, and tactile. Like its peers, gustatory has its roots in Latin—in this case, the Latin word gustare, meaning "to taste." Gustare is a somewhat distant relative of several common English words, among them choose and disgust, but it is a direct ancestor of gustatory, gustation, meaning "the act or sensation of tasting," and degustation, meaning "the action or an instance of tasting especially in a series of small portions."
