Word of the Week: Combustious (adj.) – combustible, flammable, inflammable.
‘It shall be cause of war and dire events,
And set dissension ‘twixt the son and sire;
Subject and servile to all discontents,
As dry combustious matter is to fire:
Sith in his prime Death doth my love destroy,
They that love best their loves shall not enjoy.’
Venus and Adonis 1181
