Nascent is an adjective that means just coming into existence.
In Latin, the word Nasci (NAAH shee) means to be born. This, of course, was the birthplace of our word of the day. In chemistry the word nascent means ‘freshly generated.’ But in everyday use, it usually refers to something new that has signs of potential.
Years ago our company invested in the nascent video game industry. The industry was new, but we were confident in its potential.
