Today's word is litany, spelled L-I-T-A-N-Y.

Litany is a noun that means a prayer consisting of a series of invocations and supplications by the leader with alternate responses by the congregation. It can also mean a resonant or repetitive chant, or a usually lengthy recitation or enumeration, or a sizable series or set. Here is the word used in a sentence by Alex Reimer from Forbes Magazine.

A litany of NFL stars have retired early in recent years, with most of them citing the dangers of football as the primary reason they decided to hang it up.

The word litany came to English through Anglo-French and Late Latin, ultimately from the Greek word litaneia, meaning entreaty. Litany refers literally to a type of prayer in which a series of lines are spoken alternately by a leader and a congregation. This use dates to the 13th century. Between that century and the 20th, three figurative senses developed. The chant-like quality of a literal litany led first to a repetitive chant sense. Next, the repetitious - and sometimes interminable - nature of the original litany led to a lengthy recitation sense. Finally, the lengthy recitation sense was extended to refer to any sizable series or set.
