claque

Pronounced: klak, noun

Notes: I thought this may be related somehow to clique.


Yesterday’s word

The word squirl means “a flourish or curve, especially in handwriting”

First usage

This word came into English in the mid-1800s

Background / Comments

It is thought that this word is a blend of squiggle and twirl (maybe whirl). I think my signature has a couple of squirls.
