Today's word is pachyderm, spelled P-A-C-H-Y-D-E-R-M.

Pachyderm is a noun that means any of various nonruminant mammals, such as an elephant, a rhinoceros, or a hippopotamus, of a former group Pachydermata that have hooves or nails resembling hooves and usually thick skin, especially an elephant. Here is the word used in a sentence from the New York Times by Eric Pace.

"The archetypal Seuss hero was Horton, a conscientious pachyderm who was duped by a lazy bird into sitting on her egg."

The word pachydermos in Greek means literally "having thick skin," figuratively, it means "dull" or "stupid." It's from pachys, meaning "thick," and derma, meaning "skin." In the late 1700s the French naturalist Georges Cuvier adapted the Greek term as pachyderme and used it for any one of a whole assemblage of hoofed animals having thickish skin: elephants, hippopotamuses, rhinoceroses, tapirs, horses, pigs, and more. English speakers learned the word from French in the early 1800s. The adjective pachydermatous means "of or relating to the pachyderms" or "thickened," referring to skin. Not too surprisingly, it also means "callous" or "insensitive," somewhat unfairly to elephants, which are actually known to be rather sensitive.

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