Word of the Week: mien

dictionary picture

Howdy, Word Lovers! Last weeks’s WOW was risible. Risible means, according to Merriam-Webster Onlinedeserving to be laughed at or very silly or unreasonable. If that is the case, then my whole life is probably risible. Today’s word is mien. My years in French class are ringing in my ears for this one. Here goes for definition guesses for mien:

mien: 1. when I’ve been very, very good 2. the French way to spell Mayan 3. a very fancy average

What’s your guess for mien?
