La palabra del día: (H)ológrafo/a/s

Adjective. Both ológrafo and hológrafo are valid. This word is used almost exclusively in Legal Spanish and it refers to a document, especially a will, entirely in the handwriting of the person whose act it purports to be. E.g.: Una seria laguna, que habrá que colmar cuanto antes y sobre la que ya en el pasado se insistió, es la falta del testamento ológrafo de un número considerable de militares: One serious gap in our archives that must be remedied as soon as possible involves the hand-written last wills and testaments of many of our military personnel. dc
