MORIBUND – Logophile entry #8

Posted: October 31, 2013 in musings, Words

Another adjective used to describe a somewhat unpleasant occurrence. This time originally used as a term of describing something or someone at the point of death. Although rarely used nowadays when it is, its used more widely.  I remember a colleague of mine in a previous life using it to describe the condition of an entire establishment on Beavers Lane in Hounslow.  I’d have gone as far to describe the entire town this way to be honest.

So I give you Moribund – Twinned with Brighton and Hove Albion FC.
