It means somebody who performs functions: an operator. Your challenge? Write a sentence (or two) in the comments using this word.

    1. It does a bit! 🙂 I seem to recall a “Fry and Laurie” sketch, years ago, that basically managed to make a lot of obscure and quite clean English words sound rather rude.

  1. Oh, gah, ‘functor’ is a something in some field of mathematics I don’t know. But I do follow a couple of, like, Geometry-fact-of-the-day or Analysis-fact-of-the-day type feeds. It gets Twitter suggesting now and then that I read the Functor-fact-of-the-day and I don’t even know where to start with it.
