Thursday’s Word [Week 7]

And here is Thursday’s Word. This Thursday we have a word from a nonfiction book (gasp, I know), that I was reading. Can you believe it? Me? Nonfiction? XP Anyway, yeah, so that was pretty cool. I like the word myself. It just looks cool, and it sounds cool too. Rolls right off the tongue.

Week: 7
Word: Feckless
Definition: “Lacking initiative or strength of character; irresponsible” (New Oxford American Dictionary)
Backstory: This was a cool word that when I saw I had no idea what it meant. I actually found this word while reading a book on feminism for a research paper I was writing. I can’t remember what in the world the book was called, something about “the new woman” or something, but yeah. It’s a cool word, I like it, and hopefully it’s new for some of you guys too.

Oooh! Burn XP

Oooh! Burn XP

Ok, here we go then. Another word to the list of words we’re slowly gathering. That was a confusing sentence. XP

  1. I really like this word, sounds like it could be the perfect insult (though it’d be an insult used by a smartypants; nobody knows words like this, let alone uses them XP)

    • Yep. Definitely could be used as an insult, or for a scolding. Just imagine a grandmother saying to her grandson, “You feckless child!” =P
