Prandicle , noun;
1. A light meal; a snack

So I found this great website called 'Save the Words' which not only has a fabulous layout, but a great concept as well. It lists all kinds of obscure and archaic English words and you pick one and 'adopt' it. When you adopt a word you are basically saying you are going to use this word as much as possible in everyday speech. Basically you are doing your part to revive the dying word. The word I chose is prandicle, so it seemed only natural to share it with you here.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary this word comes from classical Latin prandiculum ("light meal") which is a combination of prandium ("lunch") and -culum which is a diminutive suffix.

*Today's word and the first definition were both taken from Save the Words
