A Word for Every Day of the Year

A Word for Every Day of the Year

A weird and wonderful word and its meaning for every day of the year.

‘A lexicological delight’ Professor David Crystal


Who knew that to dringle is to ‘waste time in a lazy lingering manner’? Or that a sudden happy ending could be termed a eucotastrophe? Looking for an alternative word to ‘bullshit’? Then try taradiddle.

A Word for Every Day of the Year is a fascinating collection of 366 words and their definitions, perfect for anyone who loves the richness of the English language, its diversity and wants to expand their vocabulary. Each day offers a rare and remarkable word with its history and definition and occasionally a challenge to include it in our lives.
