That word means what? (game)
« on: May 19, 2011, 04:25:31 PM »
Every once in a while, theres a word I like, but don't really know the meaning. Saunters is a word I like. I always thought it meant a tired and heavy walk. According to M-W it means a leisurely stroll.

Now onto the game.

Someone posts a word. The next poster says what they think the word means, then uses M-W to get the actual definition. Then you post your reaction to how close or far you were off, and post a word for the next person.

So, on to the word game.

Disgusted, or appalled at an action

Actual definition of Abhorrent:

-adjective
1. Strongly opposed
2. Not agreeable

Pretty close i guess, my definition was a little harsher worded then the actual definition.

New word:

Fillip
