It’s a bright, sunlit Tuesday afternoon and the weather is pleasant here in Portage, Michigan. I sit on my bed, fascinated by the idea that I will once again be busy in a week’s time when my internship and my summer classes start.

Looking that the ending of the word, “am,” I can see that this word seems like a noun. Let’s break this word down into smaller parts to understand if there’s any inferred meaning from its parts: flots-am. I see the first part is similar to the word “float.” Based on these parts, I infer the word would be used for talking about:
Something that either floats or would float.
Definition and Pronunciation
noun | FLAHT-sum
floating wreckage of a ship or its cargo; broadly : floating debris

I would use the word in a sentence as follows:
Earlier this month, since my mother was bored, she just decided to one day clean out my flotsam filled room.
