Transcript.

Today's word is roustabout, spelled R-O-U-S-T-A-B-O-U-T.

Roustabout is a noun that means deckhand, or a person who loads and unloads ships at a seaport. It can also mean an unskilled or semiskilled laborer especially in an oil field or refinery. Roustabout also means a circus worker who erects and dismantles tents, cares for the grounds, and handles animals and equipment. Finally, roustabout can mean a person with no permanent home or regular occupation, also one who stirs up trouble. Here is the word used in a setnence.

Nathan worked for years as a roustabout in the oil fields of Alaska until he earned enough money to go to college and become a petroleum engineer.

Circus roustabouts are commonly associated with circus animals, of course, but they also have a connection with game birds, at least in terms of etymology. Roustabout comes from roust, which is an alteration of rouse, a verb from Middle English that originally meant "to shake the feathers" as in the way a bird might ruffle its feathers or shake its plumage when it is settling down or grooming itself. Rouse, which today is a synonym of awaken, also formerly meant "to cause to break from cover," a sense that may have influenced the modern meaning of roust, which is "to drive as from bed roughly or unceremoniously."
