MacKinnon’s Word for the Day: Spatterdash

Spatterdash: n. (chiefly pl.) Long gaiter or legging to protect stockings etc. from mud etc.

Try dropping this one into everyday conversation.

“Pardon me, old boy, but could you pass me your neckerchief? I appear to have some speckles of effluent on my spatterdashes”
