Word For The Weekend: SPECIFITY

Word For The Weekend

SPECIFITY

[spes-uhfis-i-tee]

DEF: (Spoiler alert!) the quality or state of being specific. (in biochemistry & pharmacology, the selective attachment or influence of one substance on another, as an antibiotic and its target organism, or an antibody and its specific antigen.) The origin of specificity? Sometime between 1875 & 1880. Of ALL words, you’d think that they could be more specific about the exact origin of specificity. (Fun Fact: specificity is as hard for me to say as it is fun for me to say, when I can eventually get it out.)
