Notes: I should have been able to get close to this definition (but I didn’t)
The word peccable means “imperfect; flawed; capable of sinning”
Our word came into English in the early 1600s
Background / Comments
The more familiar word is ‘impeccable’ (without sin; perfect). I didn’t know that the opposite was a word, which is why I used it, even though you could guess the meaning if you thought of ‘impeccable’. Our word comes from the Latin word peccare (to err or sin). We get the word peccadillo from the the same source.
