Today's word is multifarious, spelled as one word M-U-L-T-I-F-A-R-I-O-U-S.

Multifarious is an adjective meaning having or occurring in great variety, diverse. Here is the word used from an editorial in the New York Times.

"The report presents a convincing case that the agency has been stretched too thin in its multifarious duties - from combating counterfeiters and computer criminals to standing guard over presidents past and present and their widows."

Dictionary makers have dated the first appearance of the word multifarious in print as 1593 - and rightly so - but before that time another word similar in form and meaning was being used: multifary, meaning "in many ways" and appearing and disappearing in the 15th century. Before either of the English words existed, there was the Medieval Latin word multifarius meaning the same thing as our multifarious, from the Latin word multifariam, meaning "in many places" or "on many sides." Multi-, as you may know, is a combining form meaning "many." A relative of multifarious in English is omnifarious meaning "of all varieties, forms, or kinds," created with omni- meaning "all" rather than multi-.

Here's the word used from an adtorial in the New York Times.
The report presents a convincing case that the agency has been stretched too thin in its multifarious duties, from combating counterfaiters and computer criminals to standing god over presents past and present and their widows.
Dictionary makers have dated the first appearance of the word multifarious in print as 1593, and rightly so. But before that time, another word similar in form and meaning was been used, ''multifary'', M-U-L-T-I-F-A-R-Y, meaning in many ways, and appearing and disappearing in the 15th century. Before either of the English words existed, there was * Latin word, multifārius, meaning the same thing as our ''multifarious''. From the Latin word , meaning in many places or on many sides. ''multi'', as you may know, is a combining form meaning ''many''. A relative of multifarious in English, it's omnifarious, meaning of all varieties forms or kinds, created with ''omni'', O-M-N-I, meaning all, rather than ''multi''.
