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

Triskaidekaphobia (noun, early 20th century):

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”
