September The Eighth: A Word

Quiet day today which must mean I'm actually doing some work. And conversely maybe that The New Pornographers are making it impossible for me to concentrate on anything. Today's word:


adj: Tending to irritate; repellent.
adj: Serving or tending to repel.

Practice: 'I find G W Bush rebarbative.' Say it loud and say it proud! And say it to his face; he won't get it.

I came across it in a book on Programming Ruby, of all things. Nice language, good book.
