Word of the Day – Slattern

By July 13, 2015May 24th, 2016Word of the Day

Slattern (noun)


A dirty, untidy woman.
Slatternly (adj)

I do so love this word, it feels so satisfying when rolling off the tongue; plus it’s always a good thing when someone doesn’t realise they’re being insulted.

Example sentences

“For someone so precise in her working life, at home she’s a slattern”

“The woman was a slattern, exiting the alley her lipstick awry.”
