Transcript.

Today's word is gossamer, spelled G-O-S-S-A-M-E-R.

Gossamer is an adjective that means extremely light, delicate, or tenuous. Here is the word used in a sentence from the New York Times by Melena Ryzik.

"On two screens, she watched herself spin in a green field, gossamer wings floating off her body."

In the days of Middle English, a period of mild weather in late autumn or early winter was sometimes called a gossomer, literally "goose summer." People may have chosen that name for a late-season warm spell because October and November were the months when people felt that geese were at their best for eating. Gossomer was also used in Middle English as a word for filmy cobwebs floating through the air in calm, clear weather, apparently because somebody thought the webs looked like the down of a goose. This sense eventually inspired the adjective gossamer, which means "light, delicate, or tenuous" - just like cobwebs or goose down.
