adage

a saying that sets forth a general truth and that has gained credit through long use


I was composing a blog entry in my head yesterday and got stuck on this word, because it made me recall when I was a kid and thought that it was pronounced “uh-DOZH” rather than “ADD-ij.” I had never heard anyone speak it, and it looked so similar to a word that I had heard a lot during my early days of playing the violin: “adagio.”
