wainwright

We don’t talk about wrights much anymore, about makers. Lampwrights, wheelwrights, and certainly wainwrights seldom appear in everyday conversation. This may have something to do with the absence of the activity of making such things as lamps, wheels, and waggons. What hath your wright wrought for you?

Archaisms are us.

One thought on “wainwright

  1. I think it’s because everything we use is now made in factories in China. We don’t get to know the people who make our stuff anymore.
