Word of the day:
ugsome (UG-suhm) adjective
[From Middle English, from uggen, from Old Norse ugga (to fear). As in many
typical stories where one child in a family becomes well-known while the
other remains obscure, "ugly" and "ugsome" are two words derived from the
same root -- one is an everyday word while the other remains unusual.]
"The grandmother is at times ugsome ..."
