Transcript.

Today's word is umpteen, spelled U-M-P-T-E-E-N.

Umpteen is a nuon that means very many or indefinitely numerous. Here is the word used in a sentence from the Charlotte Observer by Allen Norwood.

"It's the home chore that everybody hates most. I see that on the TV how-to shows, read it on umpteen do-it-yourself sites. Nobody likes removing wallpaper."

In Patrick MacGill's early 20th-century novel The Great Push, his war-weary character Bill says:"I'll go to bed and I'll not get up for umpty-eleven months." You know the feeling. His umpty originated as military slang around 1905 and stood for an indefinite number, generally largish. It was probably created by analogy to actual numbers such as twenty. Soon, there followed umpteen, blending umpty and -teen. Umpteen usually describes an indefinite and large number or amount, while the related umpteenth is used for the latest or last in an indefinitely numerous series. We only occasionally use umpty these days and even more rarely umptieth, but you're bound to hear or read umpteen and umpteenth any number of times.

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