I came across this word in a P.D. James book yesterday. I'd never seen nor heard of it before. Have you? It means: "causing annoyance, irritation, or aversion; repellent."

I came across that word many times before. Do you play freerice.com ?

I don't think I've encountered it before unless it is one of those words Vocabulary.com was trying to teach me. I haven't returned to that addictive site for a long time. Just no time.

I know of the word but itr is not very common. Gotta give PD James credit for finding a use for it...

She uses a lot of high-falutin' words in this book.

Then I'm not alone. And I thought I knew a lot of words!

Me either. Never read that word before. Someone had it out for Barbra.
