Early English Word of the Day

As long as I'm looking at my new dictionary of early English words that are no longer in use, I will be trying to blog some of the more interesting ones back into existence.

The word today is: Clapperdudgeon.

It was used to describe someone who is a vagrant, a beggar, or who comes from a far less than noble background.

Used in a sentence: Premiere Dalton McGuinty is going to turn all of Ontario into one giant megacorporation and he won't stop until everyone is a 'clapperdudgeon.'
