Wednesday Word: Feracious


Fe*ra"cious\, a. [L. ferax, -acis, fr. ferre to bear.] Fruitful; producing abundantly. 

Nope, not ferocious.

I bought a 1916 edition of Webster's New International Dictionary from the neighborhood used book store. I don't know how many headings it contains, but it weighs five pounds and it's printed in small text, on "India" papermeaning a thin onionskin paper. That's a lot of words.
