Pronounced: PAB-yuh-luhm, noun

Notes: Not at all what I thought

Yesterday’s word

The word happenchance means, as a noun, “a chance occurrence”. As an adjective, it means “resulting from chance”

First usage

Our word came into English in the mid-1800s

Background / Comments

I’ve never run across this word; I do now the word happenstance; our word is an alteration of that word; a blend of happening and circumstance.
