Feeling crapulous?


When a mortal feels crapulous, that person has been eating and drinking too much, and feels uncomfortable or ill as a result.

The word, an adjective, is similar in Spanish (crapuloso/a), and has been used in Engish since the 16th century. It originally comes from the Latin word (crápula) meaning intoxication (intoxicación).

Some examples of its use.

  • How are you feeling today? Crapulous.
  • Feeling crapulous, I still went to work (sintiéndome crapuloso, …).
  • The man was taken to hospital because he was feeling very crapulous.
  • Mr. Sanchez, the Spanish Prime Minister, felt crapulous after the banquet with the Chinese dictator.

So, have you ever felt crapulous?
