I told Les that I didn't have a vocabulary extensive enough to express/convey how much I HATE the person I wrote about in "OLD AGE AND TREACHERY". He asked, "How about execrate?" I said, "I think that means to curse or swear." I Googled the Online Dictionary and found that yes, indeed, Les was right AGAIN, and execrate can be used as a synonym for hate: it means "to loathe intensely "as well as "to swear or curse." Since we love nuance: hate means "to dislike intensely" and loathe means "to look down on contemptuously". Love the nuance!
Among other synonyms for HATE:
I meant the verb, not the noun!
