The obscure word of the week is hornbeam

look_it_up_T httpwww.clipartpal.comclipart_pdeducationdictionary_10586.htmlThis week’s obscure English word is hornbeam.

It’s a species of tree, genus Capinus, known for its hard wood. The word is of Middle English derivation. And it is, I suspect, no coincidence that the late Professor T. called one of his Ents Quickbeam. Your challenge? Write a sentence (or two) in the comments using this word.
