Gregarious is an adjective that means sociable or outgoing.
Our word of the day is often used to describe a friendly, extroverted person who is good in groups or flocks of people. So it makes sense that its root word Gregis (GREJ ees) is Latin for ‘sheep.’ We also find traces of the word Gregis in words like ‘congregate,’ ‘aggregate’ or ‘segregate,’ but while these words can be negative or positive depending on their context, describing someone as gregarious is almost always a compliment.
