A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
MEANING:noun: An open grassy, almost treeless plain.
ETYMOLOGY:From Spanish llano (plain), from Latin planus (plain), from planus (level). First recorded use: 1613.
USAGE:"I decided to prepare this year by reading some Westerns to get in the mood. Generally, that is a type of literature I have avoided, but once you get to where you recognize the names of places and know a llano from a plateau, they are kind of fun."
