Today, I’m exploring two words that have pug in them. They are not the word “pug” with a suffix or a prefix, they are not derivatives of each other, nor are they related to the pug dog breed. However, I thought I would share them with you anyway along with this adorable photo.
Repugnant [ri-puhg-nuhnt] (adj.):
1. distasteful, repellant, or offensive.
2. making opposition; contrary.
It was rather repugnant of him to arrive at church foully smelling of weed.
Pugnacious [puhg-ney-shuhs] (adj.):
inclined to quarrel; ready to fight.
I have no intention of putting up with your pugnacioustemperament tonight!

I love love love words…thanks for making Mr smile with that pic…and the cute reminder of pugnacious…I like puns.
Pugnacious! Love it. My task today is to use that word in a conversation.
Is there a way of ‘liking’ your posts, or maybe I am just failing to see it?
Maybe it’s your connection. No one complained before 🙂
Top Left corner, after her name is a “Follow” button. It’s very well camouflaged. 😉
Like all the accounts on wordpress… Thank you 🙂
Great words, and such a cute pic! 🙂
I’m almost sure I’ll be using that word this week. Lol.. Thanks for sharing Marqaux!
Be A Blessing!
Thank you! 🙂
Love the word pugnacious. I shall try and use it at least once this week. Hopefully I’ll avoid smelling repugnant as well.
Your photo is so cute and provided a positive balance to counteract the memory of conjugating verbs in my High School Latin classes (pugno, pugnas, pugnat…).
Awww, cute pic. Great words and are also really fun to say. 🙂
