Did you know?

Prognosticate, which comes from the Greek prognōstikos (“foretelling”), first appears in English during the 15th century. Since that time, prognosticate has been connected with things that give omens or warnings of events to come and with people who can prophesy or predict the future by such signs. William Shakespeare used the “prophesy” sense of prognosticate in the sonnet that begins “Not from the stars do I my judgement pluck.” “Of thee this I prognosticate,” the Bard penned, “Thy end is truth’s and beauty’s doom and date.”
