JA’GGY. adj.

jaggy-adj

JAGGY. adj. [from jagg.] Uneven; denticulated.
His tow’ring crest was glorious to behold;
His shoulders and his sides were seal’d with gold;
Three tongues he brandish’d when he charg’d his foes;
His teeth stood jaggy in three dreadful rows. Addison.
Amid’ those angles, infinitely strain’d,
They joyful leave their jaggy salts behind. Thoms. Autumn.
