- Obvious and offensive, blatant, scandalous
- (archaic) On fire, flaming.
Used in a sentence:
- The use of a word that obviously wasn’t very weird was a flagrant misuse of Nojh’s editorial power over A Singularity.
Okay okay so flagrant isn’t really a weird word. I hear it a lot on television, particularly law shows. It is a word that I like the pronunciation, although I also tend to misspell the word as fragrant, which is kinda funny. I challenge you to go read something that uses the word flagrant and mis-read it as fragrant. Also the archaic meaning is kinda interesting. “That was a flagrant abuse of the law!” “Well go get some water then!”
