-Not easily carried, handled, or managed because of size or complexity
-cumbersome, bulky, clumsy, impractical

-late 14c., "lacking strength," from un- (1) "not" + O.E. wielde "active, vigorous," from P.Gmc. *walth-
"have power" (see wield). Meaning "moving ungracefully" is recorded from 1520s; in ref. to
weapons, "difficult to handle, awkward by virtue of size or shape" it is attested from 1540s
-1. I think of UN meaning not and Wield meaning to hold and just think cant hold

Sepulchral (adj.)

Definition: of or pertaining to burial; proper to or suggestive of a tomb; funeral or dismal.

Synonyms: mournful, forlorn, dismal, dreary.

Antonyms: cheery, upbeat, happy

Etymology: 1610s, “pertaining to a burial or place of burial,” from L. sepulcralis, from sepulcrum (see sepulcher). Transf. sense of “gloomy” is from 1711.

Memory Aid: This is a little far-fetched but here it is. The word sepulchral kind of has the word crawl in it at the end. Sometimes the undead are seen "crawling" up out of their graves. A very dismal scene.

Sentence: Zombies were seen crawling up out of their graves at the sepulchral graveyard, writhing and grabbing for a hold with which to pull themselves up.

straitlaced (adj.)
Meaning: extremely strict in regard to moral standards and conduct; prudish, puritanical
Synonyms: highly conventional, overly strict, stuffy
Antonyms: lax, loose, indllugent, permissive, dissolute
Etomology: When women wore corsets, they were tied up in laces. If a woman's laced were tied straight and tight, she was a proper woman. Meaning she had the right virtues and values, much as someone straightlaced might have. This word is apparently an example of "folk etomology" where the word was not originally spelled this way, but the dictionary recognizes this spelling as legitamate now.
Memory Aid: Well, you could think of the above etomology because tight laces tend to mean you are uptight in your values. Also, straight in straightlaced reminds me of a ruler. And when I think of straightlaced people I think of old time schoolteachers whacking children with rulers for their not-so-virtuous behavior.
Sentence: Old and straightlaced Mrs. Brittle punished little Timmy for acts of tomfoolerly, whapping him with much vigor.

Extricate
Def. (v.) To free or release from a difficulty or entanglement
Syn relieve, disburden, release, rescue
Ant.complicate, embroil, entangle, encumber
Ety.1610s, from L. extricatus, pp. of extricare "disentangle," from ex- "out of" + tricæ (pl.) "perplexities, hindrances," of unknown origin. Related: Extricable ; extricated ; extricating ; extrication
Mem aid. "ex" is also in exit. Extricate sounds like extra gate, and if you have an extra gate, you would probably get rid of it, because a gate is rather large and burdensome.
Sentence: I saw the kitten perched precariously on a branch, wondering if I should help him down.
