What About Daily?

12 Feb

hebdomadal:  \heb-‘dä-m(upside down e thingy)-dl\ n. weekly

Classic Usage:  We’ve already discussed the penurious food rations at Lowood, but here Jane describes the generous amount of food they got on Sundays.  In a doubling of their normal fare they received an entire slice of bread with a thin scrape of butter, “it was the hebdomadol treat to which we all looked forward from Sabbath to Sabbath.”

Classically Mad Usage:  Have you finished your vocabulary assignment from yesterday?  You can plan on that being a hebdomadol event.
