Summer’s Adjective of the Month- Cantankerous

on September 25, 2017

          I’ve decided to make a post like this every month instead of every week.  I did that because I entered the Student Blogging Challenge and want to make sure I have time for that.  So, this month’s adjective that I’ve chosen is cantankerous.  Here is the definition that I got from :



My way of pronouncing it: can

  1. having a difficult and contrary disposition
  2. stubbornly obstructive and unwilling to cooperate


My partner at the collaborative station is very cantankerous.  I don’t think that we’ll get our work done on time.

Sometimes people can be very cantankerous.

    Hi Summer,

    M name is Ally, and I never would have known what cantankerous was without your post! My sister is very cantankerous, but once and a while I am, too. How did you find that word? Were you looking through the dictionary? Keep up the great work! Here is the link to my blog:

    Hi Summer,
    your blog is really pretty and I can tell you put a lot of thought into it. I love that you do adjectives of the month- that’s so cool. Last year cantankerous was one of my vocabulary words, so it is cool that you found this word too.
