    present word of the day 12-Feb-2013

    kinchin

    \ kin-chin \ , noun;

    1.a child.



    He's naught but a kinchin , no bigger than a sparrow.


    Now I come to think of it, Kinchin is English too. In Oliver Twist the boys who work for Fagin are taught to be kinchins and prig people's wipes.




    Derived from the German kindchen , kinchin is a diminutive form of kind meaning "child." Kindchen entered the lexicon in the last decade of the 1600s.
