Pronounced: PRIH-dee-uhn, adj

Notes: This word is seldom used, which is a shame as it’s a useful word

Yesterday’s word

The word spitfire refers to “someone high-spirited, quick-tempered, and outspoken”

Background / Comments

This word came from the combination of spit and fire.

First usage

This word showed up in the early 1600s

Rejected word

I decided against zero-sum, because I know what it refers to: note that this word is often misapplied; true zero-sum instances are rare.
