Word of the Day: MISQUEME

ETYMOLOGY
from mis- (expressing negation of something good or desirable) 
+ queem, queme (to please)

EXAMPLE
“…The kings law wol no man deme
Angerliche without answere:
But if any man these misqueme,
He shall be baighteth as a bere:
And yet wel worse they wol him tere,
And in prison woll him pende,
In giues, and in other gere.
When God woll, it may amend
…”

From: The Ploughman’s Tale, c1535
