Today's word is execrable, spelled EXECRABLE.

Execrable is an adjective that means deserving to be execrated, detestable. It can also mean very bad or wretched. Here is the word used in a sentence.

It turned out that the execrable odor was coming from a bag of onions rotting in the back of the pantry.

He or she who is cursed faces execrable conditions. Keep this in mind to remember that the word execrable is a descendant of the Latin verb exsecrari, meaning "to put under a curse." Since its earliest uses in English, beginning in the 14th century, execrable has meant "deserving or fit to be execrated," the reference being to things so abominable as to be worthy of formal denouncement such as "execrable crimes." But in the 19th century we lightened it up a bit, and our "indescribably bad" sense has since been applied to everything from roads as in "execrable London pavement" - a sentence from Sir Walter Scott, to food as in "The coffee in the station house was ... execrable." a sentence from Clarence Day, to, inevitably, the weather "the execrable weather of the past fortnight" from The London Evening Standard.

I'm Peter Sokolowski with your Word of the Day.
