英 [vɪ,tjuːpə'reɪʃ(ə)n; vaɪ-]
- vituperation (n.)
- mid-15c., but rare before early 19c., from Latin vituperationem (nominative vituperatio) "blame, a blaming, censuring," from past participle stem of vituperare "disparage, find fault with," from vitiperos "having faults," from vitium "fault, defect" (see vice (n.1)) + parare "prepare, provide, procure" (see pare). Vituperatio was stronger than either Latin reprehensio or Modern English vituperation.
- 1. Xiangzi had become a butt of vituperation.
