Word of the Day: ASSOPIATE

– irregular from French assopir, modern assoupir, or Italian assopire
from Latin as- = ad- to + sopīre (to lull asleep)

“…that it wes not intended as ane justificatione of the Band, for they did imagine that all of that kynd was already assopiat, bot that it was his Lordships owne privat thoughts, quhilk wes not to come without the bounds of his owne charter-kist…”
