Source unknown

I came across a new word in my blog wanderings this morning. I can’t find the source so you’re going to have to do without.

jeremiad n. a doleful complaint or lamentation; a list of woes. [French jérémiade from Jérémie Jeremiah from ecclesiastical Latin Jeremias, with reference to the Lamentations of Jeremiah in the Old Testament]

That’s another new one by me.
