Word Of The Week (WOW #13)

Word Of the Week (WOW) is a weekly meme created by Heena Rathore P. (me), it’s a fun way to improve one’s vocabulary by learning new words every week.


If you want to participate then simply do a post with your WORD and leave the link to your post as a comment on one of my WOW post.

Here’s this week’s WOW:




Part Of Speech:

feckless: adjective

feck′less·ness n.



Lacking initiative or strength of character; irresponsible.

useless, worthless, incompetent, inefficient, inept, good-for-nothing.


effective, effectual, efficacious, efficient, expedient, operant, responsible, useful.

Word Origin: 

Late 16th century: from Scots and northern English dialect feck (from effeck, variant of effect) + -less.

Use in sentence: 


She can’t rely on her feckless son.

The feckless man no longer cares for his wife ‘s ideals, or even for himself.


The drill sergeant’s intent was to convince all therecruits of their fecklessness.


He performed his functions fecklessly.


I hope you guys like this word and hope it’s useful to you in some or the other way!
