Michigan weather now seems to be a bit more consistent—fingers crossed! I am loving the high-60s weather outside and right after I finish this post, I’m going to go enjoy a nice, long bike ride through the Al Sabo Land Preserve!

Initial inference

Let’s start with the ending of the word, “ic” which clearly points me in the direction of this word being an adjective. Breaking the word as pel-agic, I don’t really pick up any initial meaning with the first part, but maybe it’s used to describe some kind of time in history? For now, I think the meaning of the word:

A description used for something or someone from a particularly distint time in history.

Definition and Pronunciation

adjective | puh-LAJ-ik

  1. of, relating to, or living or occurring in the open sea : oceanic

Example usage

I would use the word in a sentence as follows:

We, humans, are mammals that live on land but there are also quite a few pelagic mammals such as dolphins.
