Tuesday Word: beggary

Beggary (ˈbɛgərɪ) is a state of extreme poverty, beggars as a class, or a place that beggars live or frequent, as in "The beggary live in beggary in the beggary." Ugh. Beggary comes from the Middle English beggerie, with the OED citing its first recorded usage as dating to 1377.
