The English abhor is a SAT word meaning “to hate”, as we all know.
But who would’ve thunk that it’s related to the common Spanish word aburrir, meaning “boring”?
Aburrir comes directly from the Latin abhorrere meaning exactly what it seems to.
And Ahhorrere itself brings us other English words, like horror.
So — to be boring is actually horrible, by definition!
