Wednesday's Word

Word of the Day

"Loy" - noun [$100-1000] obsolete, rare, dialect; three distinct usages.
Loy means 1. alloy; (2) (Anglo-Irish, Irish language spelling is 'laighe") a kind of spade used in Ireland; 3. a female given name.
Sentence:  Can reasonable solutions to national problems be found when most political discourse consists, metaphorically, of each side hitting the other in the head with a loy?

This word appears in the fine, famous play about aspects of Irish rural life by J. M. Synge, "Playboy of the Western World".
