Word Nerd Wednesday: Sanguinary

I am currently reading a book which is much more scholarly than entertaining. It’s titled Exiles in Florida, and was written in 1858.

In it, I ran across the word sanguinary, which I was able to define on my own using context clues. However, it was the first time I can remember encountering it. So here goes.


1: bloodthirsty, murderous sanguinary hatred

2 : attended by bloodshed : bloody this bitter and sanguinary war

3 : consisting of blood

It’s been a while since I did one of these so I hope it was educational to someone!

Until next time…
