Word of the Day: Eructation

Today's word of the day from is highly appropriate for those who have boys in the house:

eructation \ih-ruhk-TAY-shuhn\, noun:

The act of belching; a belch.

Eructation comes from Latin eructatio, from eructare, from e-, "out" + ructare, "to belch."

My son is becoming very good at eructation! Should I be proud?
