Today's weird word is: truckle

Definition:

My sentence: I refused to truckle when my husband thought he was right. Even though he was...

Let's hear some sentences! This one was hard!

I refused to truckle when my teacher told me I needed to write that essay. Now, I'm failing her class. (Thank god that isn't true!)

Isn't it weird how words that have similar meanings sometimes rhyme, like buckle and truckle?

LisaAnn Turner said...

I love that word! I will not truckle to peer pressure.

Demitria said...

Wow, it seems like truckle should have a more positive meaning...it reminds me of turtle and chuckle...but then again I'm a little crazy. :)

I always love Wednesday's on your blog.

Sometimes I have to truckle to my character's. They certainly have a mind of their own at times :)

Jenn Johansson said...

hehe... hmm... I will keep working on my WIP, even though I kind of want to truckle.

I truckled to my two year old and gave him a sucker after a half-hour of whining. True story.

Every day I look forward to the word of the day on dictionary.com. It makes me happy:)

I truckle to my kids more often than I should.

Angie said...

Nice word. Peter refused to truckle to his captors any longer.

Maggie said...

If the definition includes the word obsequiously, it's probably too advanced of a word for me :)

@Melissa- Ha ha! You always seem to make me laugh! :D

@Candice- It is weird. Buckle and truckle are both weird words. Buckle. Truckle. Knuckle...Better stop there. ;)

@LisaAnn Turner-It's a fun word to say! :D

@Demitria- That's okay. I'm a little crazy myself! ;)

@Michelle Merrill-Great sentence! I had a really hard time thinking of one this time! LOL

@Jenn Johansson-Ha ha! That's an awesome sentence too! You guys rock!

@R.S.J.- I love dictionary.com too! It's so fun to see what weird word comes up every day! Some of them are a little too weird for me though...LOL

@Myrna Foster- Me too. Me too...

@Angie- Great sentence! :D

@Maggie It was definitely too advanced for me! I had to look up what obsequiously meant in the dictionary! LOL

Truckle is an odd word, it doesn’t sound very literary, more like the line of a bad joke (LoL) but here goes: “There would be no reasoning with this man but she certainly would not truckle to him like a serf to his king.”

How'd I do? :-)
