Did you know?

Abhor implies strong feelings of repugnance, disgust, and aversion. This degree of distaste is seen in the word’s history. In earlier use, abhor sometimes implied an actual shrinking away from something in horror or repugnance. Appropriately, the word’s Latin source, the verb abhorrēre, comes from the prefix ab- (“from, away”) and the verb horrēre (“to bristle, shiver, or shudder”). As you may have guessed, the Latin horrēre is also the source of the English words horror, horrify, and horrible.
