Pronounced: PIE-lohss, adj

Notes: After reading the meaning, I think I’ve run across this word somewhere, but I wasn’t able to recall the meaning – do you know it?

Yesterday’s word

The word trangam means “a trinket, puzzle, or odd gadget”

First usage

This word goes back a long way; it came into English in the mid-1600s

Background / Comments

As I noted yesterday, I have a few things that could be described as trangams in my house. The origin of this word is not known.
