Opprobrious

Opprobrious

<ah-pro-bre-us>

abusive; hurting; humiliating;

showing hate or scorn.

The boy gave the vegetables an opprobrious look. He smiled when butter was added.

Memory trick:
opprobrious reminds of oppose.

At work:
He decided not to send the opprobrious email. He wanted to think of something positive to write.
