It’s Wednesday and as you know on The Sparkle Writers Hub, it is time to learn a new word.
Today’s word sounds a bit funny but let’s find out what it really means.
Scapegrace is pronounced ˈ/skeɪpɡreɪs/
At first glance, you might think “scapegrace” has something in common with “scapegoat,” a word for a person who takes the blame for someone else’s mistake or calamity. This is not it.
Scapegrace is used to describe a mischievous or wayward person, especially a young person or child; a rascal.
Let’s look at the word in a few sentences
Alex is a scapegrace, we don’t want him at the party.
Discipline your son early, else he will become a scapegrace.
Now that you know we hope you can use this word in place of words like stubborn or rascal. See you next week!
