Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading and is hosted by Bermuda Onion.
- glaikit - "I'm not completely glaikit." An adjective (Scottish and N. English) that means stupid, foolish or thoughtless.
- caitiff - "Cads. Caitiffs. Chickens. Cowards. Craven -" Noun archaic - a contemptible or cowardly person.
Interesting new words, thanks! for sharing.ReplyDelete
Your two new words are new to me too.ReplyDelete
Don't ask me to spell either of these new-to-me,too, words!ReplyDelete
I love Scottish words, glaikit is an excellent concept. Haver is my favourite Scottish word that I know, and use.ReplyDelete
I think I've seen caitiff, but I had no idea what it meant. Thanks for playing along!ReplyDelete
