Dodrantal

Greetings and salutations! I am imifumei and beginning today I will be taking over Tuesday posting. I will do my best to live up to rainbow_yarn's fine example. I am sure you all will get to know me well enough through my weekly posts so, without further ado, on to today's word!

dodrantal adj, English: of nine inches in length

This is a lost word, having commonly appeared in Modern English only from the mid-1600s to the late 1800s before falling out of fashion as a reference for measure.

Usage:
The politician admitted to taking suggestive photos of himself but some remained skeptical of whether the dodrantal member in the pictures truly belonged to him.

Or

He probably called the band Nine Inch Nails because Dodrantal Nails didn't have the same ring to it.
