Word of the Week - The archives

As part of our weekly group meetings, and for a bit of fun, the group would choose a Word of the Week at the end of each meeting and I would research that word and its meaning and post an entry on the website. While this practice has since been abandoned, the entries are archived here for your enjoyment!

In addition to english words we also chose a Scots word of the week. Visit the Scot's Word of the Week Archive for more...
