Word of the Day: Minatory

  • baleful: threatening or foreshadowing evil or tragic developments; "a baleful look"; "forbidding thunderclouds"; "his tone became menacing"; "ominous rumblings of discontent"; "sinister storm clouds"; "a sinister smile"; "his threatening behavior"; "ugly black clouds"; "the situation became ugly"

    Usage: There are a plethora of minatory articles out in the news these days, whether about global warming or the state of our administration, or terrorism, &etc.

    (encountered the term in the book I'm proofing and thought it was neat)
