Word of the Day: Excoriate

Since receiving a Word A Day Calendar, I’ve decided to write a short something including my new word each day.

excoriate

verb ex·co·ri·ate ek-ˈskȯr-ē-ˌāt

  1. 1 :  to wear off the skin of :  abrade

  2. 2 :  to censure scathingly

My co-worker was excoriated by his boss for poor performance.  It only made him more sneaky in looking for ways to blame others.
