It has been a while since we’ve given you a sneak peek at HubPages HQ, so here’s a good one – our fearless moderator Maddie gave us a real vocabulary nugget some Thursdays back, and we thought you might enjoy it as much as we do! Watch the video for the big reveal:
The word? Defenestrate! To throw out the window.
It’s quite the fun word to use – perhaps you might include it in your next hub! Many of your fellow Hubbers already have, as a matter of fact.
Happy Hubbing 😀

Defenestrate must be a new word because I could not find it in the American Heritage Dictionary. Does it literally mean to throw out the window like a piece of trash or is it a figurative meaning like to not consider in the mist of other considerations?
I love words and so this is good for me…I usually go to dictionary.com to get the word of the day just to expand my vocabulary…so thanks for sharing!
