Pronounced: RIDE-nt, adj

Notes: A nice, useful word, but I didn’t know it

Yesterday’s word

The word blag, as a verb, means “to obtain something by guile; to cheat, rob, snatch, steal, scam, or beg”. As a noun, it means “a robbery, con, or theft”

First usage

Our word came into English in the 1930s

Background / Comments

The origin of this word is not known… I don’t remember having every run across it.
