#12 on my list, Learn 30 new words (#3)

I've been very lax in the education of my vocabulary, but I heard a new word today and I really like it.

Pronunciation [proh-ping-kwi-tee]
Function - noun

Etymology - Middle English propinquite, from Latin propinquitat-, propinquitas kinship, proximity, from propinquus near, akin, from prope near


1.nearness in place; proximity.
2.nearness of relation; kinship.
3.affinity of nature; similarity.
4.nearness in time.

I'm definitely gonna have to find a way to introduce it into a sentence.
