Word of the Week - September 21st, 2012

*Hustings*: (Noun) [HUHS-tingz]: The political campaign trail, (Before 1872) the temporary platform on which candidates for the British Parliament stood when nominated and from which they adresse the electors, any place from which political campaign speeches are made. Example. *But he still had to go out to the hustings a word whose meaning he'd never learned, and campaign forpeople, or at least give speeches*

Give using *Hustings* a try by using it in a sentence in the comment section!
