Watered-down Definitions for Wednesday: Irascible

  • Word: Irascible 

  • Definition: Irascible is an adjective that means the nature of being upset upon being provoked.

  • Origin(s): Irascible is of Middle French origin, which came from irascibilis; all of this is based on the Latin, ira, which for me, calls irate to mind.
