An old-fashioned word.

And I mean that in several senses. Both that it is an old word, generally, and that the fashion of the word is old, and that the fashion of the word has passed out of date. Nowadays, you only see this feminine ending used on the word "dominatrix", which is a pity. I still use the word "executrix" which comes up on occasion in my work, but it's a losing battle.

Speaking of my work, I think it is my schedule that makes me so often forget to post Friday's word upon the day. My apologies. Perhaps I'll have to change the schedule to be Sunday to Thursday, instead of Monday to Friday.

accusatrix

rare.

A female accuser.
