# What is a Quotidian Word™?

This is in the spirit of the What is a Word™/Phrase™ series started by JLee with a special brand of Phrase™ and Word™ puzzles.

It seems that it's a rite of passage on PSE to make at least one of these, so if a word conforms to a special rule, I call it a Quotidian Word™.

Use the examples below to find the rule. The order of clues doesn't matter, and the pairings of Quotidian Words™ and Not Quotidian Words™ don't convey any additional information.

These are not the only examples of Quotidian Words™, many more exist.

• I'll preemptively say that having "key" and "lock" in the same column is not a mistake. – samm82 Jan 15 at 16:29

A Quotidian Word™ is one which you can

prefix a day of the week to produce another word.

Frisky

• Quotidian, meaning 'daily' also fits. Nice work. – Baldrick Jan 15 at 16:45
