Your Word of the Week: Griffonage

Griffonage is a word for something we’ve all seen, and most of us have also created a little from time to time.

griffonage (n.) – crude or illegible handwriting

Doesn’t really need much more comment, does it?

Usage: The judge reprimanded the court stenographer for her griffonage, but it was later revealed that her chair had inadvertently been electrified when the new security system was installed.

Meditate on this word all week long, and as always, listen to xersradio.com each Thursday from 5 to 7 pm, Central time, and be the first to know your next Word of the Week! (The WOTW usually appears at around 6.)
