The act of throwing a person out of a window



Did you know

there is an alternate meaning, meaning installing an alternate system on a windows computer

i swear

is it a real word i am bear gonna prank my English teacher if it is!!

Best word ever.

Now, I know what to do with my co-workers. Defenestration to all!


And exactly how many times did he fall out of the window?
"Oh, I lost count of how many times I defenestrated him."

I have seen it

Author David Eddings uses this word at least once in each series of books he writes as a joke because no one knows what it means and assumes it means something nastier that it does

thats hilarious

lolol i love this word


He is my new Favorite author.


This is a milestone in my life now...

i lkee it

i lkee it

Have you thought of nonchalant

How about a word like nonchalant, cause defenestration is totally chill.

Let me laugh a lot at that.

Let me laugh a lot at that.

Literally my favourite word

Even before I found it on here. I found it a few weeks ago, I love telling teachers I want to defenestrate my homework, and them not knowing what it means, even my English teacher!

I thought it was pronounced de-FENCE-estration

because the person you threw out the window might hit the fence and break it.


The Defenestration Nation has arrived.


im gonna defenestrate you


I do this all the time


This is THE BEST word in the dictionary. It is also fun to tell people because they've never heard it before :) Then it's even more fun to tell them what it means XD

or rather, throwing

or rather, throwing *something* out the window, it doesn't have to be a person


but that takes the fun out of it XD
