The obscure word of the week is flagitious

Here is your word for the day. See if you can use it at tonight’s meeting of the Gettysburg Writers Brigade.

look_it_up_T httpwww.clipartpal.comclipart_pdeducationdictionary_10586.htmlThere are over a million individual words in English. Most of them are quite obscure and deserve better attention than they get. This week’s is flagitious.

It means criminally evil, a word deriving from Middle English and thence Latin, ‘flagitium (‘a shameful crime’).

Your challenge? Write a sentence (or two) in the comments using this word.
