Word Adoption 2016: Boustrophedonic

Boustrophedonic describes a writing system that writes alternatively from left to right then right to left: boustro means ox, phedon means to turn, so boustrophedonic writing is written is as the ox turns to plow a field.

I encourage you to support Wordnik, particularly through word adoption.
