Good evening and welcome to Word of the Day! A journey through the English vocabulary and the words that piqued my interest, in WotD we'll be learning a new word for each working day of the week, bar holidays, unless there's a holiday special...
Today's word is:
The remnants of a liquid left in a container, together with any sediment or grounds: coffee dregs.
- The most worthless part or parts of something: the dregs of society.
ORIGIN: Middle English: probably of Scandinavian origin and related to Swedish drägg (plural).
