Agathokakological: Made up of Both Good and Evil
Alright, I admit it. I had no post idea for today so I came up with this lame one instead. I like words. I am always trying to understand the history of a word. Where did it come from, who used it first, its original purpose, etc. When I was a kid my brother and I played a game to see who could come up with the largest and most obscure word, I usually won. This one is a mouthful isn’t it. It comes from the Greek words agathos, meaning good and kakos, meaning bad but I can’t find the history of it. So all you teachers out there help me out. There must be more than just the definition and the origin. Also what is your favorite ridiculously long word.
