Transcript.

Today's word is misbegotten, spelled M-I-S-B-E-G-O-T-T-E-N.

Misbegotten is an adjective that means unlawfully conceived, illegitimate. It can also mean having a disreputable or improper origin. Misbegotten also means not worthy of respect or approval. Here is the word used by Chase Olivarius-Mcallister in The Durango Herald

"The annals of medical history are strewn with wrongheaded theories, misbegotten paradigms and woefully ill-conceived treatments. U.S. physicians no longer prescribe heroin to children afflicted by coughs - common practice in 1912. Lobotomies, all the rage into the 1950s, too, are passé."

In the beginning, there was the word "bigietan," and "bigietan" begot "beyeten"; then in the days of Middle English "beyeten" begot "begeten," and from thence sprung the word "misbegotten." That description may be a bit flowery, but it accurately traces the path that led to "misbegotten." All of the Old English and Middle English ancestors just listed above basically meant the same thing as the modern word "beget" - that is, "to father" or "to produce as an effect or outgrowth." That linguistic line brought forth "misbegotten" by adding the prefix "mis-" meaning "wrong," "bad," or "not" in the mid-1500s.
