Word of the Week – March 12, 2022



Latin, 17th century

Wild; frenzied. Cybele, a goddess of nature from Greco-Roman mythology, had priests and attendants called “Corybants.” The term comes from the Greek “Korubantes.”

Example: Some of my stories appear corybantic upon initial reading, but there’s a reason behind the chaos.
