Transcript of Frindle
I would be writing this report with a frindle, if I weren’t doing it on the computer. This is the dictionary definition of frindle.
1. A pen or permanent marker.
Etymology: From the novel w:Frindle, Frindle in which a 5th-grader (fictional Nicholas Allen) invents the word "frindle" as a substitute for the word "pen," in an attempt to annoy his English teacher.
Lincoln Elementary School
5th grade teacher
Mrs. Granger wouldn't let her class use the word frindle, because it wasn't in the dictionary. If they used it, they had to stay after school. This caused a rebellion that went on for 10 years.
Finally, frindle earned its place in the dictionary.
