Today's word is zeroth, spelled Z-E-R-O-T-H.

Zeroth is an adjective that means being numbered zero in a series, also of, relating to, or being a zero. Here is the word used in a sentence by Pat Murphy and Paul Doherty from Fantasy & Science Fiction.

"Many tall buildings lack a 13th floor, skipping from 12 to 14 to avoid that dreaded number. Most buildings - at least in the U.S.A. - also lack a zeroth floor."

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to use zeroth, but the word, which was coined by physicists 120 years ago, does often show up in scientific contexts. It comes from zero, which is itself from the Arabic word ṣifr. These days zeroth is frequently used to suggest a level of importance that is even higher than first. Renowned Soviet physicist Lev Landau used zeroth this way when he classified all the famous physicists according to the relative value of their contributions to science. He put Niels Bohr and Max Planck, for example, right up there in the first class, and lesser-rated physicists in the second through fifth classes. Where did he think Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton belonged? They were unmatched, he felt, so they went in his zeroth class.

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