Transcript.

Today's word is piebald, spelled as one word P-I-E-B-A-L-D.

Piebald is an adjective that means composed of incongruous parts. It can also mean of different colors, especially spotted or blotched with black and white. Here is the word used in a sentence by Brenda Charpentier from The New Hampshire Sunday News.

"What they did find, though, were some surprise photos of a piebald deer, something few people ever get to see in the woods."

To many people, the noisy black and white birds that go by the scientific name Pica pica - better known as magpies - are nothing but pests. But the Latin root that was adopted for their name isn't a linguistic nuisance; it played an important role in the development of the word piebald. The pie of piebald, pie is another name for a magpie derives from pica, which is Latin for "magpie." The other part of piebald comes from the word bald, which can mean "marked with white"; it can also be found in the word skewbald, an adjective used to describe animals marked with patches of white and any other color but black.
