Today's word is adulate, spelled A-D-U-L-A-T-E.

Adulate is a verb that means to flatter or admire excessively or slavishly. Here is the word used in a sentence from the San Mateo Daily Journal by Dorothy Dimitre.

"We adulate the wealthy, the notorious and egocentric and even the crass and depraved and pay little attention to people who are thoughtful, erudite, wise, compassionate and generous."

Man's best friend is often thought of in admiring terms as faithful and true, but there are also people who more clearly perceive the fawning and cringing aspect of doggishness. When the Romans used the Latin verb adulari to mean "to fawn on," they equated it with the behavior of a dog toward its master. The actual root of the word may even be connected to an earlier Indo-European word for "tail" which, of course, brings tail wagging to mind. In English, we first used the noun adulation, meaning "exhibition of excessive fondness," similar in meaning but not etymologically related to adoration, then the adjective adulatory, an adulatory speech, for example, is an excessively flattering one, before we came up with the verb in the 18th century.
