The Word of the Day for Tuesday September 16, 2014 is DUX (duks)—in British territories a student who is the top academically and in the Roman Empire a military commander of troops in a frontier location. Both DUXES and DUCES are valid plural forms.

The dux (student) certainly impressed the royal entourage by easily listing the major accomplishments of many duces (Roman commanders) during the duke’s tour of the school.
