Tiggy’s Word Of The Day – Flange
I reckon I know at least 200 words, maybe even more. Tiggy’s Word Of The Day will feature some of my favourite ones. And maybe some that aren’t so great. Sorry.
(I’m not doing it every day or I will have run of words out by Christmas).
An engineering term for a rim, collar, or ring on a shaft.
Flange shaft. Rim flange. Flange ring. Engineers have a bigger sense of humour than I suspected. Either that or they can discuss flange rings without feeling warm in a special place. And don’t get them started on crack fatigue.

Is this one of your favorite words? Or just a random one? I don’t know how to pronounce it, so I guess I missed my shot at becoming an engineer. Sigh.
How to pronounce, let’s see. Well, ‘flange’ sounds like… erm… hmmm.
Let’s just say it’s not a word widely used in poetry.
Hope that helps!
