word or phrase to add to your army.
Acerbic (uh-sir-bick) is a word used to describe words that are sharp, sour, or bitter. It also describes foods that are sharp, sour, or bitter.
That means if you bit into a nasty piece of sharp cheddar, a sour lemon, or a bitter radish, you might yell out a sharp, sour, or bitter remark, like, "Yuck! I've got something sharp, sour, or bitter in my mouth!" Or, you could just say, "This thing in my mouth is acerbic!" and spit it out.
I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
