The obscure word of the week is fairlec

There are over a million individual words in English. One of the more obscure is fairlec.

This term, originating from the high medieval period, means beauty – ‘fair lock’ is an approximation. I suppose it creates images of fair damsels with golden tresses living in Castle Anthrax with nothing to do. But I digress…

Your challenge? Use today’s obscure word in a sentence, down in the comments.
