New Word!


Pronunciation: \ˌyü-zə-ˈfrək-chə-ˌwer-ē, -sə-\
Function: noun
Date: circa 1618

1 : one having the usufruct of property
2 : one having the use or enjoyment of something

From Merriam-Webster.com

Usually, we say "tenant," but I think the person who wrote the contract was all excited to use "usufructuary."

I wonder... if you don't usufructuary, do you lose your fructuary?
