Word of the Day

Here is one my mother mentioned during one of our academically charged conversations.

Today's Word:


To take in and incorporate as one's own.

Origin: Latin 'assimilatus' meaning 'likened to'.

Sentence example: He was assimilated into the native culture of the village as he had been staying there for three months.
