Happy Monday! We’re back on with the A-to-Z and I have something fun to share:
Noun: an artificially made dwarf, supposedly produced in a flask by an alchemist.
OK, I laughed out loud when I found this word. Truly? An artificially made dwarf? In a flask? Can you see the little dude in the image? Can you imagine the uses for such a creature? I wish I had that recipe.
Of course there are other, more reasonable definitions, but they are nowhere near as fun.
- a fully formed, miniature human body believed, according to some medical theories of the 16th and 17th centuries, to be contained in the sperm
- a diminutive human being.
- the human fetus.
