Sunday Rest: otorrhoea. Word Not Even To Think About Today.

Well, at least you can see that the word otorrhoea is going to be something horrible.

And it is.

My advice would be to look away now...

...what, are you still here? Well, if you really must know, otorrhoea is a discharge from the ears.

Yes, I know. But I did warn you, didn't I?

Word Not Even To Think About Today: otorrhoea. The Greek for ear is ous, though when it gets joined up into longer words it changes into ōt. Rhein means to flow.
