The word of today is feckless, spelled f-e-c-k-l-e-s-s.Feckless is an adjective that means weak or infective,it can also means worthless or irresponsible.Here's the word used in sentence:although Trevor was admired by his colleagues at newspaper,he turned out to be a feckless reporter,and so he was resigned to the copydesk.Someone feckless is lacking in feck. You might well ask what is feck. Feck is a Scot's term that means effect or majority and comes from the 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.The feckless is a commonly used English word today,but fectful has fallen out of use.
