edacity

PRONUNCIATION: (i-DAS-i-tee)
MEANING:
noun: Greediness; good appetite.

ETYMOLOGY:
From Latin edere (to eat). Ultimately from the Indo-European root ed- (to eat, to bite) that has given other words such as edible, comestible, obese, etch, fret, and postprandial. Earliest documented use: 1626.
=========================================================

PEDACITY - the cheek of public teachers in forbidding little school kids to eat the food in their lunch pail dutifully prepared by their own mommies.
