slipshod

Prounciation: The `o’ in the second syllable sounds like the `o’ in `hot’ and `got’. The main stress is on the first syllable `slip’.

Slipshod means sloppy or careless. Anything that is `slipshod’ has been done in a careless way.

For example, please don’t ask Praveen to write the report. He is a slipshod writer.
