Word of the Day 04-05-2006, A Clarification

The word of the day for yesterday, April 5th, 2006, was cum. For your reference, it is pronounced KUM (with an "oo" sound), and means "with." It is often popularly used in graduation honors, such as cum laude, magna cum laude, or summa cum laude.

Also, it is Latin, slightly archaic, and has fallen out of every day use (I would say, being the language historian that I am).

Finally, get your mind out of the gutter.
