Did You Know?
If you have guessed that "temerarious" may be related to the somewhat more common word temerity, you are correct. "Temerarious" was borrowed into English in the early 16th century from Latin temerarius, which in turn derives from Latin temere, meaning "blindly or" recklessly." "Temerity," which arrived in English over a century earlier, also derives from "temere"; another descendant is the rare word intemerate (meaning "pure" or "undefiled"). "Temere" itself is akin to Old High German demar, Latin tenebrae, and Sanskrit "tamas," all of which have associations with darkness.
