Etymology[edit]

fringe +‎ -y

Adjective[edit]

fringy (comparative fringier, superlative fringiest)

  1. Beyond the boundary of the mainstream.
    • 2009 March 21, Ginia Bellafante, “Show About the Universe Raises Questions on Earth”, New York Times:
      In another, if fringier, analysis, the show’s focus on the struggles of a contained brigade of human survivors in a post-apocalyptic galaxy is a loose parable for the events in the Book of Mormon: Gaius Baltar (James Callis), the venal scientist turned collaborator turned false prophet turned savior equated not with Jesus or a hundred televangelists but with Joseph Smith.
  2. Adorned with fringes.
    (Can we find and add a quotation of Shakespeare to this entry?)
