Word of the day: gobbet

A gobbet — from the Middle English word for a chunk of meat — is an extract from a primary source put forward for analysis.

I’m doing a history course at the City Literary Institute in central London and our lecturer assigns us a gobbet each week to consider. It is literally a ‘chunk’ of history.
