antigodlin

Pronounced: an-tih-GOD-lin, adj

Note: I’ve never heard this word, but it originates it the American south, so maybe some of you will know it.

Yesterday’s word

The word orgulous means “proud; haughty”

Background

The word comes from Anglo-French orguillus.

First used

This word originally came over in the 1200s, and was used by Shakespeare (in “Troilus and Cressida”), but then the word doesn’t seem to have been used until it was used by Sir Walter Scott and Robert Southey in the early 1800s and is still used by writers today.
