Today's word is futile, spelled F-U-T-I-L-E.

Futile is an adjective that means serving no useful purpose, completely ineffective. It can also mean occupied with trifles, frivolous. Here is the word used in a sentence from the Columbia Chronicle from Columbia College Chicago by Josh Weitzel.

"Kumiko's journey is a tragic one. It is made clear from the beginning that her quest is futile."

The word futile floated into the English language in the mid-16th century from Middle French, where it took shape from the Latin adjective futilis, meaning "that easily pours out" or "leaky." That leak of information lets you in on how futile developed its "ineffective" and "frivolous" meanings: things that are leaky are of no use. In 1827, English author Robert Southey found use for the word by blending it into utilitarian to form futilitarian, a word that is used today for anyone who believes that human striving is futile.
