I have encountered this word when I was reading ” A Rose of Emily” by Susan Glaspell. Its on page 263, ” The county attorney was looking at the cupboard– a peculiar, ungainly structure, half closet and half cupboard..”. Now that I know the meaning of the word ungainly, I know that the cupboard was built awkward and that was like kinda distracting the attorney.
