Acerbic: Word of the Month

Acerbic: Sour or bitter tasting; acid. See synonyms at bitter.

Sharp or biting, as in character or expression: “At times, the playwright allows an acerbic tone to pierce through otherwise arid or flowery prose” (Alvin Klein).

That's what Answers.com says.

Me? I say it is an appealing word this month. I've known it and used it for years to describe people and food. This month, I have used it more than usual.
