Pronounced: ad-uh-LESS, verb
Notes: You may be able to guess the meaning, but I didn’t know this word
The word adret means “the side of a mountain that receives direct sunlight”
The word came into English in the 1930s
Background / Comments
I don’t do much mountain climbing (okay, none at all), so that may be why I haven’t heard this word. It seems kind of a technical word. The word came from French, which came from the Provençal word adreit, which came from old Provençal word adreg/adret (good; suitable – as in the side of the mountain suitable for vineyards).
