Word of the day: Imprecation

8:06 PM



How did I not know this word before I heard it today on the So you want to be a writer podcast?

Imprecation (noun)
: a spoken curse
an offensive word or phrase that people say when they are angry
If you need a sterling example of imprecation, look no further than this very special exchange in A Fish Called Wanda.


Impossible not to include on a blog about colourful words, wouldn't you say?
