Word of the Day


Pronunciation /ˈdəʊnə/
(also dona)
informal, dated Australian, New Zealand
A woman or girlfriend.

Mid 19th century originally British slang, from Spanish doña or Portuguese dona, from Latin domina ‘mistress’.


If your girlfriend is a too-close relative, I guess that makes her a blood donah.
[Pun intended.]

A pun is rarely poetic,
And often seems pathetic.
But, if with words you wish to play,
Learning to pun is an excellent way.
