crural

Pronounced: KRUR-uhl, adj

Notes: When I look at this word, I see “rural”, but that’s a false clue


Yesterday’s word

The word whigmaleerie means

  • a whim
  • a fanciful contrivance
Background

Not a lot of background; it is known to be a Scots term, but that’s about it.

First usage

The word was first used in the mid-1700s.
