The Latin words quid
literally mean "what" and "now." Put them together to get my new favorite English word: quidnunc
(pronounced KWID-nungk according to Martha Barnette
.) A quidnunc is a nosy person; a busybody (Am.H. 2000). THat is, someone who is always asking, "What now?"
"The condo is wonderful and you'll love the neighborhood, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t warn that you’ll be living next door to a pair of quidnuncs." (Barnette).
