Wordy Wednesday

Hello friends!

Since I have hit a wall creatively, I have decided to begin something new. Every Wednesday, I will post a word I really REALLY enjoy. There are many words in the English language – some gross me out, some remind me of soft and fluffy things, while others evoke dark things that thrive in deep shadowy places.

Today’s word is:

Truculent

Truculent is an adjective. It means fierce; cruel; vitriolic; scathing; aggressively hostile; belligerent. Its origin is Latin, the roots of which mean savage and pitiless.

Can you think of anyone who fits this description?

I can think of a few. From real life, and from pop culture.

Who comes to mind:

  • Wolverine (hello aggressively hostile)
  • Donald Trump (vitriolic)
  • Yosemite Sam
  • Doomsday

Bad guys tend to be truculent – but some heroes can fall in there, too.

Be careful 😉
