Word of the Day Wednesday

It's that time again! Word of the Day Wednesday is here! 

Today's word is:


inclined to quarrel or fight readily; quarrelsome; belligerent; combative.
1635–45; pugnaci ty ) (< L pugnācitās  combativeness, equiv. topugnāci-,  s. of pugnāx  combative (akin to pugil; see pugilism) +-tās -ty2 ) + -ous

In light of the elections last night, I thought of this word and wanted to verify its meaning. Once I did that, I realized it is the perfect word for today, since elections tend to make many people pugnacious

*Speaking of words, Thankful on Paper starts today. Have you written your letter yet? Me either, but I will. I promise.
