My Spanish word of the day is:
brontophobia or fear of thunder and lightning
The Esfera blog posted an article on August 20, 2015 which lists 10 common phobias and fears experienced by adults. It is titled Las Fobias Y Miedos Más Comunes En Personas Adultas. La brontofobia is number two on the list and is defined as miedo a los fenóminos atmosféricos adversos, particularmente a los truenos, rayos y tormentas, de todo tipo. (Brontophobia is fear of adverse atmospheric phenomena, particularly thunder, lightning, and storms of all kinds.)
If you would like to read more about common fears and phobias, you can go to the Esfera Psicóloga Madrid website and blog. They have many interesting articles about human psychology.
