Frail

Friends, today’s word has made me so happy. It means many things including:

A kind of basket made of rushes, used for packing figs, raisins, etc.; the quantity of raisins, etc. (30 to 75 lbs.) contained in this.

“frail, n.1.” OED Online, Oxford University Press, June 2020, http://www.oed.com/view/Entry/74131. Accessed 31 July 2020.

And it’s only used once!

• 1.080 Laid low their towers and houses frail.
