lunker

Pronounced: LUNG-ker, noun

Notes: Another word that I don’t recall


Yesterday’s word

The word dripple means “to flow in a small stream or to fall in drops”

First usage

This word came into English in the early 1800s

Background / Comments

This word is a blending of drip and dribble. I guess one would use this word to describe the water flow out of a hose after the water is turned off at the faucet… There is a small steam of water that continues to run after the water is turned off, and it breaks up into a stream of drops.
