Word of the Day: Stout

Illustration for article titled Word of the Day: iStout/i

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...





1 (of a person) Somewhat fat or of heavy build: stout middle-aged men.

• (of an object) Strong and thick: Billy had armed himself with a stout stick | stout walking boots.


2 (of an act, quality, or person) Brave and determined: he put up a stout defense in court.


A kind of strong, dark beer brewed with roasted malt or barley.

ORIGIN: Middle English: from Anglo-Norman French and Old French dialect, of West Germanic origin; perhaps related to stilt. The noun (late 17th cent.) originally denoted any strong beer and is probably elliptical for stout ale.
