(pronounced beh-RAHJ)

Whether used as a noun or a verb, this word refers to a fast, forceful projection of many tangible things (like bullets) or outpouring of intangible things (like words) at once.

Example: Being brand new to the job and not up to speed on all off the hundreds of outstanding project details, Jessica grew more and more frustrated from and frightened by the barrage of questions thrown at her by the angry homeowners’ representative.
