This week's theme: A medley of words
adit (AD-it) noun
1. Access; entrance; admission.
[From Latin aditus (approach, entrance), from adire (to approach), from ire (to go). Ultimately from Indo-European root ei- (to go) that is also the ancestor of words such as exit, transit, circuit, itinerary, and obituary.]
"As the tramcar passed beneath the low-slung adit, Sam Sanders's head
was crushed against the timbers."
The most exhausting thing in life is being insincere. -Anne Morrow Lindbergh, writer (1906-2001)
