WORD for YOUR WEEK: "Orbis" is the Latin word for a disc, or a hoop. You can see where the word "orbit" originates from. "Orbita" was used to refer to the tracks a wheel made, or a rut in the road. When you add the modifier "ex" to the front of the word, you add the phrase and meaning "out of" to the word. We now know it as the word "exorbitant," which means a deviation from the normal course of things. As in, "Margo went to exorbitant lengths to make sure she got her daily exercise."
