Tips: Sundry is derived from Old English sundor, which means "separate." This is also the source of the word sunder, which means "forcefully separating something." Think "separate," as it means "individual and distinct." A group of sundry items is a group of separate (or miscellaneous) things. Sundry can be used as both a noun and an adjective (see usage examples). The noun form refers to an assortment.

Usage Examples:
