Oddball Word of the Day

aleatory (AY-lee-eh-toh-ree) adj. depending on a contingent event; uncertain; dependent on luck

(...and, in case anyone has forgotten why I abbreviate it so outrageously, this is from The New York Times Everyday Reader's Dictionary of Misunderstood, Misused, Mispronounced Words edited by Laurence Urdang) !
