Friday word: Mataeology

Mataeology [MAT-tey-AHL-uh-jee]
-A useless or pointless discourse; worthless conversation.
-A discourse that is fruitless or in vain.

From Greek “mataios” (pointless) + “logia” (words).

Used in a sentence:
“Having long since grown weary of the droning mataeology, poor Cordelia decided that this was going to be the very last blind date arranged by her mother.”
