Hello again! Let's get down to business with another vocabulary word!
Today's word is so obscure that I could only find a couple of references to it. Is it even a real word, or is it a word someone made up in the hope of seeing it catch on? Not that I'm saying that would be a bad thing, as every word in our language was invented at some point. Yesterday's word, for example, had a very interesting origin story.
Today's word is: HALCH
Halch is defined as follows: to hug; to press firm against one's self.
You can find one of the few entries for this word HERE. That way you know I'm at least not fabricating it. Though perhaps I should consider fabricating a word and trying to spread it around the internet. It could be fun.
Anyway, let's get back to the word in question.
Reasons to know this word:
-The next time you read a romantic narrative, replace hug with halch and see how funny it sounds. It could be worth a good laugh.
-In public, you can scream aloud for all to hear "Halch me!" and see how many strange looks you get.
