Fun New Words I’m Going To Remember

To ensure remembrance of some words I’ve come across, I’ve started writing down and collecting their definitions. Sometimes it’s words that aren’t terribly uncommon but whose meanings I often forget or assume, and sometimes it’s an entirely new word to me, or something I’ve heard of but never understood. Today marks the first entry in the Fun New Words series.

vitriol |ˈvitrēəl; -ˌôl|
noun archaic or poetic/literary
sulfuric acid.
• figurative: cruel and bitter criticism : her mother’s sudden gush of fury and vitriol.
