The word for today is ABUNDANCE –  which gives you an image of flowing water. It comes from two Latin words – AB – meaning – FROM, AWAY FROM – and UNDA – meaning – WAVE. It means – OVERFLOW. The following words also are derived from this basic root. UNDULATE – to move in a wave like fashion; AFFLUENCE – plentiful flowing; INFLUX – to flow into; PROFUSE, PROFUSION – to pour forth; EFFLUENCE  – which generally refers to sewerage means to flow out. The word – INUNDATE – means to flood; to bring in the waves; it comes from the prefix – IN – which means – IN, ON, INTO, UPON and the word – UNDA. The word ABOUND – has the same etymological derivation.
