Wednesday Word of the Day

usufruct \YOO-zoo-fruhkt\, noun:
The right to use the property of another as long as it isn't damaged.

~Okay, I had to use this word today because, well, look at it.  What a weird and wild word.  It reminds me of something I'd hear on one of the shows my Darling Diva likes, Phineas and Ferb.  LOL~


  1. Interesting word... I wonder if it's an old legal term... if you borrow your neighbor's lawn mower while they're away, then you return it, and fuel it back up... ?

  2. Could be Savanna. I was just so bamboozled by the pronunciation of the word...I just can't imagine ever using it - or remembering how to say it. LOL
