Word For The Day, Monday, 3/11/13
In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".
verb (used with object), ar·ro·gat·ed, ar·ro·gat·ing. 1. to claim unwarrantably or presumptuously; assume or appropriate to oneself without right: to arrogate the right to make decisions. 2. to attribute or assign to another; ascribe.
Etymology: 1530s, from L. arrogatus, pp. of arrogare "to claim for oneself" (see arrogance).
Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.
The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....

I just noticed the Latin origins as well. Yet, I was always taught that the word “Arrogant” can from the Spanish Family.
W.S. Gilbert must have also thought the same, as in the Opera “Patience” the Soldier sings of:
“The Family Pride of a Spaniard from Aragon”.
