Today’s word of the day selcouth. It’s spelled S-E-L-C-O-U-T-H. Selcouth is an adjective that means unusual, strange.
Selcouth is derived from an Old English combination of words that meant ‘seldom’ and ‘known.’ So our word of the day can simply mean that something is strange as in unfamiliar or it can refer to something or someone that is downright weird. For example: That jacket Harry wore yesterday was selcouth. I’d never seen him wear anything like that before.
Once again, selcouth is spelled S-E-L-C-O-U-T-H.
