Word of the day: aborning

The word of the day is aborning:


  1. in birth; before being carried out: The scheme died aborning.


  1. being born; coming into being, fruition, realization, etc.: A new era of architecture is aborning.

"The democratic society that Alexis de Tocqueville described in the 1830s was still aborning in the 1780s."

 - Joseph J. Ellis, The Quartet: Orchestrating the Second American Revolution, 1783-1789
