Lost Words: Paranymph
So, I have this fascination for unusual words, and my Dictionary.com app showed me a rather interesting one this morning. I also have a fascination for finding words that have a gender neutral context in a typically gendered setting. I had no idea a gender-neutral term for bridesmaid or groomsman existed, but here it is. Check out a few links for various definitions. And feel free to use it in a sentence in the comments!
Funnily enough, none of these seem to agree on exact definition, but oh well.
