Word of the Week:

Invigilate – 1. to keep watch 2. supervise, monitor

Invigilate is a descendant of the Latin verb vigilare,

meaning “to stay awake.” As you may have guessed, vigilare

is the ancestor of our adjective vigilant (“alertly

watchful”), and it also gives us reveille (“a signal to

wake up in the morning,” via French réveillez) and

surveillance (“close watch, supervision,” via French

surveiller). Invigilate has been a member of the English

language since the mid-16th century
