Word of the week: Antediluvian

Antediluvian (adjective)

[anti-duh-LOO-vee-in]

“This cute word means ‘in the period before the flood’ – as in the one Noah was in! But it can be also used in a humorous fashion to refer to something that is antiquated or old-fashioned or outdated. So you might say: ‘Her grandfather’s antediluvian opinions on immigration caused conflict among his more progressive and tolerant children.’”
