menology

(mi-NOL-uh-jee) Pronunciation Sound Clip RealAudio

noun: A calendar, especially one commemorating specific people.

[From Modern Latin menologium, from Late Greek menologion, from meno- (month) + -logy (account). It's the same meno that appears in menopause.]

"The state Department of Archives and History's 1994 calendar, available beginning this month, is the first in a series of menologies to honor Mississippi's writers."
Jack Elliott Jr.; Mississippi Writers Calendar a Talent Roll Call: The Times-Picayune (New Orleans, Louisiana); Nov 28, 1993.
