Cumbersome

Cumbersome

<kom-bur-sum>

bulky; awkward; heavy;

something that is clumsy to carry.

The boy carried the cumbersome bricks. He stumbled and kept dropping them.

Memory trick:
cumbersome reminds of cucumber.
cucumbers are big.
imagine carrying too many cucumbers.

At work:
The projector is too cumbersome to take on sales calls. We need to buy a smaller one.
