slade (SLAYD) - n., (Eng. dialect) an open space between banks (a small valley) or woods (a glade).


Also sometimes a deeper valley like a ravine, and sometimes the hillside itself, and sometimes a peat-spade or a part of a plow. This one dates back to Old English sl├Žd, where it had both the valley and glade senses, now surviving only in a few regional dialects of England.

That wraps up the week of S words. Onward to next week!
