Pronunciation: JEH louse

Sentence: Lydia couldn't take it anymore. If she answered her cellphone, Mark would be right there, obviously listening to her side of the conversation. If she didn't take the call, he would "casually" say, "Hmmm... I wonder who was calling?" He would pretend to be doing tasks nearby whenever she was on e-mail, but she knew he was really trying to read over her shoulder. For a while she had thought his possessiveness was sweet, but now she realized he was just a jealouse. It was the same age-old story, except now with technology added.

Etymology: jealous + louse
