Matrisate

A Word for Mother’s Day

Matrisate v. to imitate a mother.

Word in the Wild: Look at the little ones matrisating with their dolls. Aren’t they sweet?

Here’s a nice obsolete word for you on Mother’s Day. If, like me, you have a brilliant, funny, thoughtful, and kind mother, you’ll be delighted if someone accuses you of matrisating. I suppose some folks might not like the accusation as much as others, though. It’s probably best to suss out the situation a little before you throw this word around. 🙂

  1. Dear Heather,
    Your mom was telling us about your web site and we all enjoyed seeing and reading your site. Terrific! I also agree with your description of your mom – she is kind, sweet, generous, loving, helpful and a wonderful neighbor.

    I plan on passing on the website to one of our word-loving friends. He will certainly enjoy reading your site. His name is John Brady, and he lives in Toronto. Look for him.

    Keep up the good work.
    Jean Turner
