Today's word of the day is vermicular. It's spelled V-E-R-M-I-C-U-L-A-R. Vermicular is an adjective that means resembling a worm.

If you look closely you'll find a worm hidden in today's word of the day. The root word is the Latin vermis (VER mis) which simply ‘means’ worm and over the years, those first four letters evolved into worm, which may make it easier to recall vermicular's meaning.

The dancing these kids do today tends to puzzle grandpa. Those strange, vermicular motions make him long for the days of Fred Astaire.

Once again, vermicular is spelled V-E-R-M-I-C-U-L-A-R.
