judder

Pronounced: JUD-uhr, verb/noun

Notes: I didn’t know this was a word, but you may be able to guess the meaning


Yesterday’s word

The word trachle means “an exhausting effort such as from a long walk or lengthy work”

First usage

This word came into English in the mid-1500s

Background / Comments

Our word comes from the Dutch word tragelen (to walk laboriously). I haven’t seen a lot of words in the lists that have a Dutch origin.
