Word of Month

Having an extensive vocabulary is important to writers. In each issue of Writers in the Sky, I will introduce and define a word that we use don’t often use. This word this month is:

Trencherman (trench·er·man)

A person who is devoted to eating and drinking to excess. A hearty eater; One who frequents another’s table.

Example sentence:

During the holidays, we take on the characteristics of a trencherman!
