Rale (adjective) – abnormal breathing sound, could be pathological in nature, an incorrect respiratory sound indicating something is wrong (from Old French)
Word in a Sentence: In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, the rale gasp of the ryfel before it shrieks sends a shudder down Chariss’s spine.
Your turn! Your sentence doesn’t have to be suspenseful; the word can have medical connotations as well.
“Some days, you just want the dragon to win.”
