Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day
  • shard

    Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for August 14, 2022 is:

    shard • \SHAHRD\  • noun

    Shard refers to "a small piece or part" of something, and is often used as a synonym of scrap.

    // A single shard of sunlight pierced the dense forest canopy, illuminating the entrance to the ancient ruin.

They would be buried there for nearly 10,000 years. In 2013 those two shards of obsidian, a natural volcanic glass, would be recovered from a sample of earth, roughly the volume of a quart of milk, that was pulled from the bottom of Lake Huron, under 100 feet of water.” — Aaron Martin, Scientific American, 1 June 2021

English speakers have adopted the modernized shard spelling for most uses, but archaeologists prefer to spell the word sherd when referring to the ancient fragments of pottery (sometimes referred to specifically as potsherds) they unearth. While shard initially referred to exactly such items, today the word is also used more broadly to encompass slivers of intangible concepts. A baseless accusation may be made "without a shard of evidence," and fans of the losing team may "cling to a shard of hope" until the final score. The utility of shard is its, ahem, point.
