Word Wednesday: Triskaidekaphobia

On this weeks Word Wednesday, Lindsay has presented the word "Triskaidekaphobia".


Triskaidekaphobia (noun, early 20th century):


Extreme superstition regarding the number thirteen.


From Greek treiskaideka ‘thirteen’ + ‘phobia’ (via Latin, from Greek - extreme or irrational fear or dislike of a specified thing or group).


“Kara might suffer from triskaidekaphobia, if she didn’t like Friday the 13th”
