Word of the Day: hoghenhine

What's "the word I'm thinking of"? Today, it's....

hoghenhine [HA-ghen-hyne] noun (TWITO, page 67)

A member of one's family; a guest who stays more than three nights

I suggest you NOT refer to your family members or long-term guests as hoghenhines, at least not in their presence, unless you are angry with them. They might take it the wrong way.
