Coolest. Word. Ever.

Defenestrate. Transitive verb. It means to throw a person or thing out of a window.

You can also use it as a noun (defenestration) or with the suffix ‘ing’ (defenestrating.)

As always, Merriam-Webster allows you to hear the correct pronunciation of the word.

I love words that have such a precise meaning! I’m going to have so much fun with this word.
