- Of, or relating to actors or acting
- Excessively dramatic or emotional, especially with the intention to draw attention
Used in a sentence:
- His flood of tears were histronic, she was sure, but she couldn’t take that chance and pulled the gun from her holster.
Is it me or are my sentences becoming more and more esoteric? Histrionic is a really interesting word to me. I expected it to relate to history but instead it is about acting or behaving in such a way as to garner attention. I was also hoping it was related to the future, because the -onic suffix always sounds futuristic.
