Transcript:

The word of the day is feckless, spelled f-e-c-k-l-e-s-s.

 

Feckless is an adjective that means weak or ineffective. It can also mean worthless and irresponsible. Here’s the word used in a sentence: Although Trevor was admired by his colleagues at the newspaper, he turned out to be a feckless reporter, and so he was resigned to the copy desk.

 

Someone feckless is lacking in feck. You might very well ask what is feck. Feck is a Scots term that means effect or majority, and comes from an alteration of the Middle English word “effect”. So something without feck is without effect, or ineffective.

 

In the past, feckful, meaning efficient, sturdy or powerful, made an occasional appearance but in this case the weak has outlived the strong. Feckless is a commonly used English word today, but feckful has fallen out of use.
