Today's word is meticulous, spelled M-E-T-I-C-U-L-O-U-S.

Meticulous is an adjective that means marked by extreme or excessive care in the consideration or treatment of details. Here is the word used in the New York Times in a sentence byJennifer Hubert Swan.

"The Australian-American Justine Larbalestier's scholarly background is on full display in her latest novel, with its meticulous attention to detail and strong emphasis on overlooked voices from history."

It may surprise you to learn that the word meticulous is derived from the Latin word for "fearful" - meticulosus - and ultimately comes from the Latin noun metus, meaning "fear." Although meticulous currently has no "fearful" meanings, it was originally used as a synonym of frightened and timid. This sense had fallen into disuse by 1700, and by the 19th century meticulous acquired a new sense of "overly and timidly careful," probably influenced by the French word méticuleux. This in turn led to the current meaning of "painstakingly careful," with no connotations of fear at all. The newest use was controversial among some usage commentators at first, but it has since become by far the most common meaning and is no longer considered an error.

With your Word of the Day, I'm Peter Sokolowski.
