[word-lover] 【整理】2009-04-02 How to Use a Word

提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
The word of today is "feckless", spelled"F-E-C-K-L-E-S-S". Feckless ia an adjective which means weak or ineffective. It can also mean workless and irresponsible. Here's the word used 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 copydesk. Someone feckless is lacking in feck. You might very well ask what is feck? Feck is Scot's term that means effect or majority, and comes from alternation of the middle English word "effect". So something without feck is without effect, or ineffective. In the past, feckful 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.
