Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: QUOIT & more

My Word of the Day

QUOIT (QUOIT) n.s.[coete, Dutch.]1. Something thrown to a great distance to a certain point.

He plays at quoits well. Shakesp. Henry IV.

When he played at quoits, he was allowed his breeches and stockings. Arbuthnot and Pope.2. The discus of the ancients is sometimes called in English quoit, but improperly; the game of quoits is a game of skill; the discus was only a trial of strength, as among us to throw the hammer.
