November 30th- Incursion

I'm a bit late, and I apologize. And because I am late, I need to resort to dictionary.com. I'm sorry.

incursion

\in-KUR-zhuhn; -shuhn\, noun

Definition:
1. a sudden attack; invasion, raid
2. a running or flowing in

Origin:
by 1432 "hostile attack," from Latin incursionem "a running against," from incurrere

Example:
Jerina's bulwarks failed to protect Bosnia from the last great incursion against Europe from the East, the invasions of Ottoman Turk armies into the southeastern corner of the continent beginning in the fourteenth century.
