SY-on (‘sy’ as in ‘psyche’)
- a young shoot or twig of a plant, especially one cut for grafting or rooting.
- a descendant of a notable family
‘Tom Riddle was the scion of Salazar Slytherin himself.’
- cutting, graft, slip, offshoot, twig
- descendant, offshoot, heir, successor
- ancestor, forebear, predecessor
Somehow I don’t think Mr Riddle would be pleased to know this word’s connection to twigs…
Any opinions on the Wizarding World?
