A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
adjective: Heterogeneous; having a mix of random things.
From Latin farrago (mixed fodder), from far/farr (corn or spelt). Ultimately from the Indo-European root bhares- (barley), which also gave us barn, barley, farina, and farrago. Earliest documented use: 1616.
“If at first glance the visitor mistakes this farraginous exhibition for a Royal Antiques Roadshow, he is not far from the truth.”
Brian Sewell; All the Charm of an Antiques Roadshow; Evening Standard (London, UK); Mar 14, 2013.
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:It is fortunate to be of high birth, but it is no less so to be of such character that people do not care to know whether you are or are not. -Jean de la Bruyere, essayist and moralist (16 Aug 1645-1696)
