sorghum
NOUN:  
1. a cereal grass, Sorghum bicolor (or S. vulgare), having broad, cornlike leaves and a tall, pithy stem bearing the grain in a dense terminal cluster.
2. the syrup made from sorgo
ETYMOLOGY:  

1590–1600; < NL < It sorgo (see sorgo )

1750–60; < It < VL *syricum (granum) Syrian (grain), neut. of L Syricus (masc.) of Syria; see -ic

1597, "Indian millet," from Mod.L. Sorghum, the genus name, from It. sorgo "a tall cereal grass," probably from M.L. surgum, suricum (12c.), perhaps a variant of L. syricum "Syrian," as in Syricum (gramen) "(grass) of Syria," from Syria, a possible source of the plant or its grain in ancient times.
