Word of the Day – Quidnunc

Quidnunc (noun)


An inquisitive and gossipy person.

I absolutely adore this word’s etymology: Early 18th century: from Latin quid nunc? ‘what now?’; exactly how I feel when in the presence of a quidnunc.

Example sentences

“Don’t trust her with anything important, it’ll be across the town in now time, she’s such a quidnunc”

“He’s the village quidnunc, anything worth knowing, he knows.”
