Definition: v. To habitually object to and contradict other people's statements, especially if they include any facts or opinions. n. A person who finds fault what other people say no matter what it is, and lets them know it.

Pronunciation: kav-uhl-REE-uh.

Sentence: He screeched like a contrary cockatoo; prowled like nitpicking prattlesnake - his tongue was merciless; his cavilrrhea relentless. And abderitious abraze bounded from his bottom lip like a crazed kangaroo. His statements, like taipan's fangs, sank deeply into the opinions of his family and friends. Bombastic, kookaburric, Bob looked to find fault in the best arguments of others, that even passers-by felt the painsay of his uttersnipe.

Etymology: Blend of CAVIL:to find fault unneccesarily & -RRHEA:excessive and frequent flow. TAIPAN: a large, fast, highly venomous, aust snake. ABDERITE: a scoffer, so called from Democritos, the laughing philospher. Kookaburra, aust bird known for its laughing.
