Transcript.

Today's word is dally, spelled D-A-L-L-Y.

Dally is a verb that means to act playfully; especially to play amorously. It can also mean to deal lightly, or to toy. Dally also means to waste time, or to linger or dawdle. Here is the word used in a sentence from The Daily Chronicle of DeKalb, Illinois.

"Voters don't elect leaders to dally, stall, drag their feet and excel at the art of delay."



English speakers have been playing with different uses of the word dally since the 14th century. They first started using the word with the meaning "to chat," which was also the meaning of the Anglo-French word from which it was derived, but that meaning fell into disuse by the end of the 15th century. Next, dalliers were amusing themselves by acting playfully with each other especially in amorous and flirtatious ways. Apparently, some dalliers were also a bit derisive, leading dally to mean "to deal with lightly or in a way that is not serious." It didn't take long for the fuddy-duddies to criticize all this play as a waste of time. By the mid-16th century, dally was weighted down with its "to waste time" and "dawdle" meanings, which, in time, gave way to the word dillydally, a humorous reduplication of dally.
