New Words Please (Part 1)

The first part in an occasional series where words which are needed, but have yet to be formally defined, in English finally get a name to call their own.


Frolesworth

Main Entry: Froles-worth

Pronunciation: 'frOls-w&rth

Function: noun

1: A word whose sound seems particularly apposite given its meaning but is not an onomatopoeia, e.g. melifluous or clumsy.
