Word of the Week: Frore
February 25, 2022 by High Park Nature Centre

Welcome to Word of the Week! Stay tuned for a new word each week to amp up your nature vocabulary!

The word of the week is frore [FROHR] (adjective): frozen or frosty.

First used in the 13th century, frore comes from the middle English word “froren”. Next time you are trying to describe how cold something is, try calling it “frore”.

Examples: The precocious flowers that bloomed over the past two weeks are suffering the frore conditions. Despite some moments of apricity today, it still felt quite frore!
