  • I am surprised that none of the dictionaries that Wordnik aggregates provides a definition for this word. When I was growing up in New England this was the common childhood term for excrement. I don’t know to what extent American dialect varies on this, but versions of the word are pervasive in European languages.

    Wikipedia provides a fascinating discussion of cacāre and its descendants:

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin_profanity#Cac.C4.81re:_to_defecate

    The whole article on Latin profanity is entertaining.

    See also kakistocracy and cacatopia.
