All About the Jens

Marriam-Webster Word of the day:

primogeniture \prye-moh-JENN-uh-chur\ noun
*1 : the state of being the firstborn of the children of the same parents
2 : an exclusive right of inheritance belonging to the eldest son

Use in a sentence:
Why yes I often invoke the right of primogeniture in the Richer family, but I also appreciate the custom nature of the word's stress syllable....Jenn!

Thought I'd share.
