Some of the most interesting 5-letter words ending with AT
Having access to words is one thing; knowing words that can initiate small talk is another. The following are 5-letter words ending with AT that just might pique your interest:
Éclat. Of French origin, “éclat” is pronounced without the T (ei’kla). It’s a noun that can mean “brilliant display” or “social distinction.”
Carat. Believe it or not, “carat” is not just another way of spelling “karat.” While both words have something to do with jewelry and purity, there’s a distinction between them. “Carat” refers to the purity of precious stones or gold, while “karat” only refers to the purity of gold.
Exeat. What’s a leave of absence not from work but from school? That’s “exeat” for you. It allows students, usually in a boarding school and on weekends, to leave the school premises for a particular reason.
Vivat. This word is an expression that means “Long live!” If you thought that it was exactly the same as “viva,” you thought right. Nevertheless, at least you now know viva’s Latin counterpart.
Zakat. Charity plays an important part in the Islamic religion. One of the means Islamic people give is through “zakat”—a yearly obligatory donation to charity.
The exFAT controversy
When it comes to validity in the English dictionary, “exFAT” passes the mark. However, Scrabble and its ilk don’t recognize the word in question (likely because it’s still an acronym). This Microsoft file system, which stands for extensible File Allocation Table, was introduced way back in 2006.
