WORD OF THE DAY

REMONSTRANCE

[ri-MON-strahns]
1. the act of remonstrating (to point out; to show clearly; to make plain or manifest; hence, to prove; to demonstrate.)

2. earnest presentation of reason in opposition to something; protest; expostulation: “Yoshi had so much more to say in opposition, but his two year old vocabulary only allowed for the most basic remonstrance: ‘no’.”


Origin:
Approximately 1477; borrowed from Middle French, ‘remonstrance’: to show; from Medieval Latin, ‘remonstrantia,’ from ‘remonstrans,’ present participle of ‘remonstrare’: to point out, to show (from Latin ‘re-‘: intensive prefix + ‘monstrare’: to show, from ‘monstrum’: evil omen, monster).
