Sporadic

(spə-ˈra-dik)

adj. 1. Occurring occasionally, at intervals or random times.

“It would behoove WordADay.org to become less sporadic, lest its appellation become a misnomer.”

 

From Latin sporadicus, from Greek sporadikos, from sporas, meaning “scattered, dispersed.” Related to the word ‘spore,’ as in a plant’s seeds that get scattered around.
