Wednesday's Word
formerly known as the "What're Words For..."

Word: No-see-um (N.)
Definition: tiny biting insect, minge

When you’re off on a fishing trip, or just a walk through a field, and the exposed parts of your body feel dozensx of fiery nips, you’ve made acquaintance with the no-see-ums or minges.

(Definition from: "How To Talk Yankee", by Gerald Lewis & Tim Sample, copyright 1979, 1986 by The Thorndike Press; copyright 1989 by the First North Country Press)
