Sometimes a word just has a certain feeling. You just see or hear the word, and, deep down, you just know what it means. It just feels obvious. This is such a word.

Hello and welcome to Word of the Week! Here, I inform you about a word that I believe is not used enough and how you can use it in a sentence. The word of this week is:


Icky: “Icky” is an adjective. It means: bad, unpleasant, gross.

Example sentences:

- “How are you feeling?” “I don’t know man, I’ve just been feeling very icky lately.”

- Some sounds, such as nails on a chalkboard, just sound icky!

- That deadline coming up is making me feel very icky… maybe I should start with the project.
