Today's word is brusque, spelled BRUSQUE.

Brusque is an adjective that means markedly short and abrupt. It can also mean blunt in manner or speech often to the point of ungracious harshness. Here is the word used in a sentence.

On her first day of work, Diana's new boss gave her only a brusque greeting before showing her the place where she would be working.

We borrowed the word brusque from French in the 1600s. The French, in turn, had borrowed it from Italian, where it was spelled brusco and meant "tart." And the Italian term came from bruscus, the Medieval Latin name for butcher's-broom, a shrub whose bristly leaf-like twigs have long been used for making brooms. English speakers initially used brusque to refer to a tartness in wine, but the word soon came to denote a harsh and stiff manner - which is just what you might expect of a word bristling with associations to stiff, scratchy brooms.

With your Word of the Day, I'm Peter Sokolowski.
