Word of the day: quincunx

It is the arrangement of five objects – such as trees – in a square or rectangle, one at each corner and one in the middle.

I’d never come across the word before this week when it was ‘word of the day’ on the online dictionary I use on my iPhone.

You have to be careful how you say it and write it.
