Word of the Day: PACABLE

from Latin pacabilis (placable),
from pacare (to appease, pacify) + -bilis (-ble)

“…Divil a worse, sir, yet not more now than ever. – Time immemorial, – wasn’t it always so? a house burned here, and a pacable tinant carded there; one villain murthering another, for teeking land over his head…”

From: Dramatic Scenes from Real Life
Manor Sackville
by Lady Sydney Morgan, 1833
