This week's theme: Words with double connections
didymous (DID-uh-muhs) adjective
Occurring in pairs; twin.
[From Greek didymos (twin). Ultimately from the Indo-European root dwo- (two) that also gave us dual, double, dubious, doubt, diploma, twin, and between.]
"Shakespeare portrays the didymous functionaries as if they were
a unit comprised of two parts."
God gives every bird his worm, but he does not throw it into the nest. -Swedish proverb
