English[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

fairing

  1. present participle of fair

Noun[edit]

fairing ‎(plural fairings)

  1. A structure on various parts of a vehicle, for example an aircraft, automobile, or motorcycle, that produces a smooth exterior and reduces drag
  2. A present; originally, one given or purchased at a fair. (Uncommon)
  3. Also in old Scots (at least), like 'fare' simply something edible, as in Lady Nairne's "Caller Herrin'" or in Burns's "Tam o' Shanter"; Tam is warned that the witches will "get thy fairin', in Hell they'll roast thee like a herrin'". Like Cornish fairings, but Lady Nairne's usage is not exactly an "edible treat"
