(pronounced a-SIR-bik)

A great way to remember what this word means: think acid. Yes, this descriptor means sharp and bitter in tone, temper, or mood. And I think we all know someone like this. (Just don’t let that someone be you.)

EXAMPLE: During studio peer review, Kelly’s bitterness permeated the room; after his negative evaluation, he just couldn’t hold back his the acerbic remarks that were flooding his brain.
