500 Words You Should Know (Part 6)

Published

on

61. Covetous

As given by the Old Testament Book of Exodus, three of the Ten Commandments enjoin us not to covet things belonging to our neighbour – it means to envy him for owning them and desire to own them ourselves. So if people disobey these commandments they become covetous themselves and probably cast covetous eyes on someone’s house, wife, male servant, female servant, ox or donkey. The Commandments make no specific mention of money, fast cars or 3D TVs, but it’s certainly possible to covet those, too.

62. Cupidinous

The Greek god of love was Eros, and words derived from his name, such as erotic, erotica and erogenous zones, are connected with love and sex. Eros’s Roman equivalent was Cupid and, despite the famously enamouring effects of Cupid’s arrows, cupidinous desires are likely to be for money or possessions rather than for anything more intimate.

63. Decrepit

Very old, worn down and creaky; used to describe a person, a building or possibly a philosophy or political policy that has outlived its usefulness. As the nineteenth-century poet Walter Savage Landor put it, ‘States, like men, have their growth, their manhood, their decrepitude, their decay.’ It’s time they were put out to grass is the subtext.

64. Denounce

To accuse publicly, to give information against. A serious word: you are likely to denounce someone as a traitor, a hypocrite or, at best, a fool.

65. Deprecate

To express disapproval, to criticize. It isn’t as public as to denounce. You could deprecate someone’s hypocrisy (or foolishness) in private. To depreciate is similar, but carries the implication that your criticism has reduced someone’s worth – it’s related to the depreciation that attacks the value of your new car. Self deprecation, however, is to undervalue yourself, often jokingly.

66. Derisory

An adjective applied to a very small amount, often, but not necessarily of, money. It’s connected with derision and is therefore such a small amount that it deserves to be laughed at. Derisive is another close relation and is usually  applied to something mocking or scornful. A derisive account of the pay negotiations, for example, might explain why staff received a derisory salary increase.

67. Desultory

Half-hearted, unmethodical, without really paying attention. Not generally used to describe a person, this is found in expressions such as in desultory manner or, memorably in a 1940s  detective novel by Georgette Heyer, the flirtation was a desultory affair, because one of the participants was worrying about the murder rather than paying attention to the girl who was attempting to flirt with him.

68. Diatribe

A forceful, bitter criticism; a rant. Opposition parties have been known to indulge in anti-government diatribes, and diatribes may also be aimed at anything from religious beliefs you don’t happen to share to fellow academics with whom you disagree on a minor point. Be warned: if you are indulging in a diatribe you are almost certainly getting carried away and may be close to losing your temper. It may be worth taking a moment to calm down.

69. Didactic

From the Greek for teaching, this means instructive, conveying a message (perhaps a political or moral one) or opinion. Although this concept was originally interpreted as being good for us, the modern meaning implies that the teaching is excessive, heavy-handed, not to be argued with: ‘I hate his didactic way of talking about wine, as if he were the only person who knew one grape from another.’

70. Disquisition

A disquisition may be spoken or written, but either way it is a long, formal and in-depth study of a subject. It’s likely to be learned, authoritative, possibly moralizing and probably just a bit boring.

Do you know that feeling where you look in the mirror and completely hate what you see. When you grab handfuls and handfuls of fat and just want to cut it all off. That feeling when you see other beautiful girls and just wish you looked like them.
