King James word definition - Bruit!

Recommended Posts

Guest N R

Bruit is apparently the old English word (from the French) for "Rumor". The word still exists today in medicine, when you suspect someone has a small hole in their artery or veins (if I understand that part correctly).

I've actually heard this used a few times in the phrase "it was bruited about," meaning "it was said," or "people are saying."

 

Like "it was bruited about that she would run for office."

That's cool! For those unfamiliar with the word, pronounced broo-ee
