Adopting words: bimarian

Standard

For this week of lovey-dovey-ness and emotions running high, I thought I’d save a word that has to do with the sea. In several different schools of thought (not all, but definitely Western ones) water and emotions are connected. Even the words for sea and love in Latin — mare and amare — are similar. 

 

bimarian

 

adj. 1731

pertaining to two seas

Sentence: My travels have been mainly bimarian, but I would like to see more than just the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.


 

Phrontistery says this word was in usage for just one year, but it’s such a great word I’m sure we can bring it back.
