Today's word of the day is nimiety. It's spelled N-I-M-I-E-T-Y. Nimiety is a noun that means an excess or redundancy (of something). The Latin word for 'excessive' is nimietas (nuh MY uh tus) but don't confuse nimiety for 'excessive' in the pejorative sense, as in, 'I found your speech to be excessive.' Instead think: if you're looking for a snack before dinner, you'll find a nimiety of options in the cabinet. There are more cupcakes in there than you could possibly eat in a lifetime. Once again, nimiety is spelled N-I-M-I-E-T-Y.
