Word of the Week: Slatternly

September 3, 2009 Word No Comments

The Word of the Week is slatternly. Take a look at that word, and try to guess its meaning. No, it’s not a synonym for “slut,” actually, it means “slovenly and untidy.”

People, in general, are pretty gross, so I think this word is incredibly useful. Honestly, I’ve spent so much of my life hating people that I’ve worn thin words like, well, “gross,” and so I welcome an alternative. Slatternly is the kind of word that just sounds like an insult too, and its adverb form, “slattern,” even more so.
