The Closing Word: Runnel

The Closing Word: NugatoryThis week we continue our vocabulary-building series, “The Closing Word.” Each week we provide a new word to help build your vocabulary and show you an example of how to use it.

This week’s closing word:


Pronounced: (RUN-uhl)

a small stream or channel

From “From Old English rinnan (to run). Ultimately from the Indo-European root rei- (to flow or run), which also gave us run, rival, and derive. Earliest documented use: 1577.”

“The pastoral property features an apple orchard as well as a burbling runnel.”
