  • 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:

    The whole article on Latin profanity is entertaining.
    See also kakistocracy and cacatopia.
