You know that word that means you get goodies to go along with (usually) a job? We usually refer to it as a "perk."
Ha. Not so!
It's a perq! Short for perquisite.
Etymology: Middle English, property acquired by means other than inheritance, from Anglo-French perquisit, Medieval Latin perquisitum, from neuter of perquisitus, past participle of perquirere to purchase, acquire, from Latin, to search for thoroughly, from per- thoroughly + quaerere to seek
1 : a privilege, gain, or profit incidental to regular salary or wages; especially : one expected or promised
That's your word lesson for today :)
