Sunday word: Omnifarious

This word was kindly provided by prettygoodword
(om-nuh-FAIR-ee-uhs) - adj., of all forms, varieties, or kinds; exceedingly varied.

As in the omnifarious interests of a polymath, or the omnifarious colors of a mixed-up chameleon:

Chameleon with too many colors
Thanks, !

First used in 1653, adopted from Latin omnifārius, derivative of omnifāriam, on all sides, from omni-, all + -fāriam, adverbian suffix.
