Word of the Day: Cantankerous


I have been busy for a while writing for new stories and poems. Have you missed me? 🙂

I am back for a little while and have brought a few new words, posts, and encouraging quotes with me. Today’s word is a difficult one to deal with.

Cantankerous [kan-tang-ker-uhs] (adj.):

disagreeable to deal with, contentious, peevish.


As cantankerous as he was, his friends couldn’t imagine arranging a gathering without him.

  1. Wow. If a person is cantankerous and they still put him in charge, he is really good at throwing a party. 🙂

  2. Glad to see you back again! I’m going to use this word all day on Tiger Mom. Nothing more fearful than a cantankerous Tiger Mom😉
