Micturate

MIK-cha-rate

To urinate, to pee.

Origin

First recorded in 1842, this verb stems from the earlier (1725) noun of micturition- very urgent need to urinate. Both come from the Latin micturitum or micturire, meaning the desire to urinate.

Why this word?

Because this is the actual word for “making water”, one that Microsoft Word marks to be wrong!

And yes, it solves the politeness problem inherent in saying “gosh I really need to pee!” also, if we can have a synonym for peeing, why wouldn’t we?

How to use micturate?

In the exact same way you urinated, peed or micturated thus far!
