Word of the Day
Wednesday, January 24, 2007
Wimple (noun or verb) – As a verb, the word means to cause something to form ripples or folds (or pleats, as in fabric/material). As a noun, the word represents a piece of material that’s wrapped around the head to frame the face (usually of a woman), and folded/pleated under the chin (this was popular back in Medieval times but some orders of nuns still wear them as part of their habits). (the word originates in Old English)

Word in a Sentence: Chaucer’s pilgrims would have included wimples in the descriptions of their ladies and nuns as they told their stories to entertain one another.

Your turn!

"Some days, you just want the dragon to win."
