WORD OF THE DAY! 1/7/12



barbarism [bahr-buh-riz-uhm]
noun
1. brutal, inhuman and/or uncivilized state or condition.
2. a savage act; or something belonging to or befitting a savage condition.
3. the use of language in an alien way.

EX. Game of Throne's Daenerys Targaryen quickly fell to barbarism, given the chance when wed to Kal Drogo, to escape the abuse of her brother/lover. Her turning moment could be conceivably be when she ate a horse's heart...

The character and author have been rightly criticized for the relationship between the mad Kalee and her husband.
