Potatory

From Latin potatorius, from Latin potatus, past participle of potare (to drink).

The word potatory has little to do with potatoes, unless the drink in question happens to be aquavit (a dry spirit made from potatoes). Two more familiar cousins of today's word are potion and potable.

Docent.

A new one on me. I recently heard it in an episode of American Dad.


Roger: Construction of the museum began in 1998. I should know because like Ross on Friends, I'm a docent but unlike Ross, I don't look like a Monchhichi.


So I googled further:




1.


(in certain US and European universities and colleges) a member of the teaching staff immediately below professorial rank.




2.


a person who acts as a guide, typically on a voluntary basis, in a museum, art gallery, or zoo.
