Wednesday's Weird Word

Wednesday's Word


Wednesday's Word will be a weekly feature wherein I'll introduce a not-very-common and/or not-frequently-used word.


Today's Wednesday's Word is: SPRINGAL.


Springal is a noun meaning: a strong, young boy; an active, springy young man.

The farmer decided to hire a springal from the nearby village to help harvest his crops.



Try using SPRINGAL in conversations and see the response you get! Have fun with it! See you back next Wednesday for another new, weird word!




Note: The source for many of the words I'll be featuring can be found at Luciferous Logolepsy. They are so obscure, I was actually unable to find some of them at a couple of common online dictionary references, such as The Free Dictionary.com.

  1. I'm hoping your surgery goes well today, Crystal, and that you'll soon feel as chipper as a springal!

  2. Great word. It has a medieval feel to it and I may have to use it in a story.

    Our thoughts are with you today, my dear friend. Speedy recovery.
