Transcript.

Today's word is lodestone, spelled L-O-D-E-S-T-O-N-E.

Lodestone is spelled as one word. It's a noun that means magnetite possessing polarity. It can also mean something that strongly attracts. Here is the word used in a sentence by John Tierney in The Atlantic.

"The map shows the distribution of high-tech manufacturing firms in the southeastern United States. Viewing the information this way allows Jim and Deb to see where these firms are clustered, helping to identify towns and cities that are lodestones of high-tech entrepreneurialism."

The word lodestone, which is also sometimes spelled loadstone, is made up of distinctly English components, ones that have been part of our language since before the 12th century. Lode comes from the Old English word which meant "way," "journey," or "course." The word stone derives from the Old English word which had the same meaning as the modern term stone. When the two ancient words were combined to form lodestone around 1518, the new term referred to magnetite, an oxide of iron that forms a natural magnet. Later, the word came to describe anything that strongly attracts.
