the word of today is feckless, spelled " feckless". Fackless is an adjective which means weak or ineffective. it can also means workless or irresponsible.here the word used in this sentence.although XX is admired by his colleagues at the newspaper he turned out to be a feckless reporter, and he is resigned to the copy desk.Someone feckless is lacking in feck. You might very well ask what is feck. Feck is a Scot’s 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,feckfull meaning efficient to study or powerful made an occassional appearance. But in this case the weak has out-lived the strong. Feckless is a commonly-used English word today, but feckful has fallen out of use.
