Pronounced: sol-ip-SIS-tick, adj
Notes: I have a faint idea that I have run across this word, but I didn’t know the word
The word gnar is “a knot on a tree or in wood”
Our word came into English in the mid-1200s
Background / Comments
I’ve always called these things “knots”; knar is new to me. It comes from the Middle English word knarre.
