Pronounced: juh-NETH-lee-ack, adj

Notes: I didn’t know this word, and probably won’t use it

Yesterday’s word

The word runnel is “a small stream or channel”

First usage

This word came into English in the late 1500s

Background / Comments

Our word comes from the Old English word rinnan (to run). We have had two words in a row that describe streams, and that isn’t a coincidence. When our word turned up, that reminded me that I’ve been meaning to add riffle from my reading, so I did so. So, as I said, not really a coincidence.
