Word of the Day 9/9/14 Fortuitous

Fortuitous (adjective)
fortuitous [fawr-too-i-tuh s, -tyoo-]


adjective
1. happening or produced by chance; accidental: a fortuitous encounter.
2. lucky; fortunate: a series of fortuitous events that advanced her career.

Can be confused
felicitous, fortunate (see usage note at the current entry)

Usage note
Fortuitous has developed in sense from “happening by chance” to “happening by lucky chance” to simply “lucky, fortunate.” This development was probably influenced by the similarity of fortuitous to fortunate and perhaps to felicitous: A fortuitous late-night snowfall made for a day of great skiing.

Origin: 1645-55; < Latin fortuitus, fortuītus, equivalent to fortu- (u-stem base, otherwise unattested, akin to fors, genitive fortis chance, luck) + -itus, -ītus adj. suffix (for formation cf. gratuitous ); see -ous
