Frangible! - A New Word...

(viewed 462 times)

Here's a whole new word that I found on a box of glass trophies from
China. I guess it's 'fragile' and... dunno.

So, suggestions as to the definition and origins of the new word -
frangible - are requested below.

This is a typical Chinese misprint - based on well-known incorrect pronunciation. The word is "flangible" i.e. you can strap the box to a wall with flanges
