Word of the Day

Editor Alan Tristram thanks Mr Christopher Ruthe for this suggestion — ‘flagitious.’

It means, among other things, ‘absolutely wicket’ and is a valuable tool when describing some politicians.

Pronunciation: ‘fluh – jish – uhs’

Chambers Dictionary gives these meanings — ‘guilty of enormous crimes’ and ‘grossly wicked.’

Derivation: It comes from the Latin flagrare, meaning ‘to burn’

Here is one of my old favourites
Facical – Definition of facical 1: of, relating to, or resembling farce : Ludicrous, the farcical parts of comedies. 2: Laughably inept: absurd farcical high jinks……………………….well it is fun to try the challenge of putting it in a sentence or two during the day, enjoy
