Word of the Week Wednesday: bespoke


This “Wednesday”‘s Word of the Week is: bespoke.

Besides being the past tense of bespeak.  It is also an adjective used in British English meaning custom-made or made to order, usually referring to clothing. As might be done by a haberdasher.

This comes from an expansion of bespeak meaning prearranged.
