[Homework]【整理】2009-08-18 How to Use a Word

the word of the day for August 17th is canicular,spell c-a-n-i-c-u-l-a-r
cunicular is an adjective that means off or relating to the dog days that is period between early July and early September when the hot   sulty  weather of summer usually occuer in the northern hemisphere here‘s the word  used sentence

During the canicular heat of August many of the town’s residents venture to the local swimming hole in search of the way to stey cool。

the latin word canicula meaning small dog is the diminutive form of canis。the suorce of the english word for canine

canicular is also the latin name  for sirius,the  star represents the hound of Orion in the constellation named for that hunter from Roman and Greek mythology

because the first visible rising of the sirius occurs during summer the hot sulty days that occur from early july to early September came  to be associate with
the dog star
the greeks call this time of year the hēmerai kynades which the Romans translated into Latin as “dies caniculares,” or as we know them in English, “the dog days.”
