WORD OF THE DAY!
Today's word is malapert and once again comes from Little, Big by John Crowley, page 75. (I had to look up so many words in that book.)
malapert is considered an Archaic word, meaning that it is rarely used today but occurs in earlier writings.
It is an adjective meaning saucy; impudent; pert.
It is also a noun meaning a saucy, impudent person.
It comes from Old French mal which meant badly plus appert which meant experienced or deft; influenced by apert which meant open, bold.
My sentence: When dealing with serious, annoying people, I tend to become malapert.
