V is for Vitrid
Antithesis to vitrid - The cliffs full of irises at Cape St. Mary's
I could hardly believe the teensy, tiny, wooshy little definition given to this saucy word in The Dictionary of Newfoundland English.
vitrid a EDD vitrit, vitrid 'angry' Ch. Of a person, nasty, vengeful (P 141-75
No etymology could I find, even in the beloved OED.
So I'm left to my own devices.
And in my brilliance I think: perfect combination of putrid and vile. Vitrid.
Toss that out when someone PO's you and leave them making like a fish behind you.
Today's post brought to you by the letter V from The Dictionary of Newfoundland English in partnership with the rest of the alphabet beginning here.
