Word of the week, 10th April

Today’s word was suggested by a friend for its superb pronunciation.

Thralldom

Thr-awl-dom; noun; serving or enslaved.

Rolling the “r” on this word makes it very satisfying to say. They also use it in the US TV adaptation of the Game of Thrones novel series when talking about their enslaved salt wives, and everyone loves a salt wife in thrall.
