Pronounced: PAH-sum, adv
Notes: A really cool word that I wish I had known when doing document reviews
The word skail, as a noun means “a scattering or dispersal”. As a verb, it means
- to scatter out, spill, or disperse
- to dismiss or to disband an assembly, group, etc
This word goes back to the early 1300s
The origin is a little uncertain; it is from either Scottish or Scandinavian origin. A nice one-syllable alternative for disperse.
