Invidious 

Definition

  1. Unpleasant and likely to cause bad feelings in other people. 
  2. Tending to cause discontent, animosity, or envy. 
  3. Giving offense by discriminating unfairly. 

adjective 

I’ll use it in a sentence: 

● Noah’s invidious affectation, angered his co-workers.* 

● Invidious lawmakers, continue to exclude those born intersex, from being recognized in law. 

● Victor’s invidious, ostentatious behavior, resulted in his expulsion from the University.  

● Because of their invidious racism, some perfidious police officers, disproportionately target African Americans. 

  • Now it’s your turn, on a sheet of paper or in the comment section below, write a few sentences using the word: invidious.
  • Tip : Use the word during a conversation today. The more you familiarize yourself with this word, by consistently incorporating it in your vocabulary and writing; the easier it will be to remember the word. Figuratively speaking, you’ll own the word. 

*Next month, DFOWW “Basic Rules of Grammer” will host an online workshop on affectation vs affection.
