Word of the day: latifundio

The word of the day is latifundio:

  1. a great estate of Latin America or Spain. (

"'I found,' he later recalled, 'that Morelos lacked three things—first plows, second books, and third equity.  And it had more than enough latifundios, taverns, and bosses."

 - John Womack, quoting Francisco Naranjo, Jr. in Zapata and the Mexican Revolution
