WOW ~ Word of the Week ~ Dastardly

I’ll be gadding about the globe off and on for the next six weeks, so the Word of the Week will be scaled down a bit to accommodate my Grand Tour(s). Oh, the places I’ll go and the pictures I’ll take!

This week’s word is one of my favorites. It’s a terrible character descriptor, and has the added bonus of sounding similar to the awful slur against someone’s parentage.

Dastardly (adjective)

“Showing despicable cowardice.” Originally, “dull.” From Middle English dastard + -ly. 1560s.

I discovered some lovely folks at Grandiloquent Word of the Day, who’ve illustrated this week’s word beautifully. Make sure to visit their tumblr and give them a follow.
