Today's word is moil, spelled M-O-I-L.

Moil is a verb that means to work hard, to drudge. It can also mean to be in continuous agitation, to churn or swirl. Here is the word used in a sentence by Susan Bayer Ward from The Chicago Daily Herald.

"Playwright Eugene O'Neill moiled over several works, including 'Strange Interlude,' in a summer rental cottage you'll pass if you're on the historical walking tour."

The word moil may mean "to work hard" but its origins are the opposite of hard; it ultimately derives from the Latin word mollis meaning "soft." Other English derivatives of mollis are emollient, mollify, and mollusk. A more immediate ancestor of moil is the Anglo-French verb moiller, meaning "to make wet, to dampen," and one of the early meanings of moil in English was "to become wet and muddy." The "work hard" sense of moil appears most frequently in the pairing "toil and moil." Both moil and toil can be nouns meaning "work." Moil implies work that is drudgery and toil suggests prolonged and fatiguing labor.
