Word of the Day: Fraxinella

Since receiving a word of the day calendar, I am writing a something short with my new words each day.




noun frax·i·nel·la ˌfrak-sə-ˈne-lə

Definition of fraxinella


  1. :  a Eurasian perennial herb (Dictamnus albus) of the rue family with flowers that emit an aromatic flammable vapor in hot weather —called also gas plant

I continuously misspell fraxinella as franzenella.  A flower that emails an aromatic flammable vapor feels like it should be spelled that way.
