- adj. Abominable.
from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- An old mode of spelling abominable, on the supposition that it was derived from ab homine, from or repugnant to man, ridiculed as pedantic by Shakspere in the character of the pedant Holofernes.
- [Abhominable occurs in the Promptorium Parvulorum (c. 1440), and in Gower; abhominacyoun is in Wyclif's New Testament, abhominacioun in Chaucer, and abhomynacioun in Mandeville. Fuller has abhominal, a form made to suit the false etymology.]
