omnifarious (adj) – Of all kinds.

Source : The Free Dictionary

Etymology : English omnifarious comes from the Late Latin adjective omnifarius ?of all sorts.? The combining form omni- in omnifarious is completely naturalized in English and needs no explanation. The element -farious comes from the Latin combining form -f?rius, -farius, which is used to form multiplicative adjectives (e.g., twofold, threefold, simplex, duplex) and is a back formation from the Late Latin adjective bif?rius ?twofold, double,? in turn derived from the Latin adverb bif?riam ?in two parts or places.? Omnifarious entered English in the 17th century.
