Today's word is contumely, spelled C-O-N-T-U-M-E-L-Y.

Contumely is a noun that means harsh language or treatment arising from haughtiness and contempt. It also means an instance of such language or treatment. Here is the word used in a sentence from the New York Times by Ben Brantley.

"She occupied the outer margins of established theater and wore that status as a badge of honor, refusing to join Actors' Equity until the late 1980s and often seeming to revel in the contumely of the mainstream press."

English poet Geoffrey Chaucer wrote about the sin of contumelie, spelled contumelie in Middle English, while composing "The Parson's Tale" in the late 1300s. The word is a borrowing from Middle French whence it had earlier arrived from the Latin word contumelia, and it has since seen wide literary use. Perhaps its most famous occurrence is in Hamlet's "To be or not to be" soliloquy in which it is pronounced \KAHN-tyoom-lee\: "For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, / Th' oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely...."

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