Today's word is neophyte, spelled N-E-O-P-H-Y-T-E.

Neophyte is a noun that means a new convert, proselyte. It can also mean novice, or tyro, beginner. Here is the word used in a sentence from USAToday.com by Martin Rogers.

"Abby Wambach taught a soccer neophyte named David Letterman (whatever happened to him?) the intricacies of the sport by booting balls into moving New York taxis."

The word neophyte is hardly a new addition to the English language, it's been part of the English vocabulary since the 1400s, but it wasn't in general use before the 19th century. When it was used in a 16th-century translation of the Bible, some folks derided it as pretentious and Latinate. One critic lumped it with other "ridiculous inkhorn terms" and another went as far as to write, "Neophyte, to a bare Englishman is nothing at all." The criticisms of neophyte weren't entirely justified, given the word's long history in English, but it is true that neophyte has classical roots. It traces back through Late Latin to the Greek word neophytos, meaning "newly planted" or "newly converted."

I'm Peter Sokolowski with your Word of the Day.
