Word – Dearth
Dearth – Word of the Day
[noun]: Something not being enough or lacking.
Used to describe the scarcity of things since the 13th century, the word is derived from a Middle English form ‘derthe’, meaning the same as in Modern English. Also, the Middle English form supposedly originated from the Old English form that probably spelled as ‘dierth’ and was relevant to ‘deore’, which is an Old English form that coined the word dear. Once upon a time, even dear meant scarce; however, it has become obsolete now.
