Pronounced: KICK-shaw, noun

Notes: Interesting word; not sure how often I’d use it

Yesterday’s word

The word boodler is “someone involved in bribery or corruption”

First usage

Our word came into English in the mid-1800s

Background / Comments

Our word came to us from the Dutch word boedel (property). This is a neat word to know, but it is not clear how our word acquired its meaning from the source.
