Adopting words: senticous

Standard

Now, this is really a great word if you’re looking for the perfect word to describe a cat, or a cactus, or a briar patch, or someone who’s rather harsh. The word is senticous — what does it mean? Read below. 

senticous

adj. 1657

: prickly, thorny

He pricked himself on a senticous bush as he searched about for his golf ball.

The Phrontistery says this word was in use for one year — 1657.  I can’t find much else on it. 

I’ve used this word many times already — mainly to describe my mood. It works perfectly. Give it a try!
