Kith: Word of the Day

Kith, n.

Acquaintances, friends, neighbors, or the like; persons living in the same general locality and forming a more or less cohesive group.

The community was small, tight, and Joe was surrounded by kith and kin.

Alternate usage:

“Aw, c’mon…”

“I said no.”

“Please?  Will all this kin around, I just need a little kith.”

“Oh, all right.  But just one.   …on the cheek.”

How will you use kith in a sentence today?

  1. Well, finally, after many many years of living in the dark, and without the curiosity to look to Webster for guidance, I have now been given a definition which puts the kith in a proper relationship with the kin.

  2. Toooooo predictable. :-]
