      the worthless word for the day is: septemplicate

      [fr. L. septem, seven + -plicate as in duplicate]
      now rare : one of seven (exact) copies of a document

      "The above is a duplicate, or rather a sex* or
      septem-plicate of an order sent off within
      three weeks.."
      - S. T. Coleridge, letter to D. Stuart (1805)

      *read, sextuplicate
