Word of the day #29: vitae

Wow. I haven't done a "word of the day" since October!!! I need to get back on top of expanding my vocabulary :)

vi·ta (vī'tə, vē'-) Pronunciation Key
n. pl. vi·tae (vī'tē, vē'tī)

A curriculum vitae.
A short account of a person's life.

cur·ric·u·lum vi·tae
Pronunciation Key - [kuh-rik-yuh-luhm vahy-tee, vee-tahy; Lat. koor-rik-oo-loom wee-tahy]
1. Also called vita, vitae. a brief biographical résumé of one's career and training, as prepared by a person applying for a job.
2. (italics) Latin. the course of one's life or career.

I just got one of these from someone and I had to look up this term. I've never heard of a vitae before. Very neat.
