Enemy, ennemi. With her tongue curled over her lip, she copied them in her notebook, then made them into sentences. * 1970, Robert Leckie, _Warfare_, page 128: Thus, chiefly through the efforts of this lover of peace and ABHORRER of war, the art of maiming and killing became ever more efficient. * 1999, Guy A. J. Tops et alios, _Thinking English Grammar: to honour Xavier Dekeyser_, page 59: The problem of usage comes in for ABHORRER in various ways: There are 63 entries with the root abhor, including 3 ABHORRER, 17 abhorrence. * (historical, sometimes capitalized) A nickname given in the early 17th century to signatories of addresses of a petition to reconvene parliament, addressed to Charles II. [Early 17th century.] * 1890, Thomas de Quincey & David Masson, _The Collected Writings of Thomas de Quincey_, page 389: Pretty much as Lincoln is thus supposed to arise out of the word _fleas_, so (according to Rapin) do the words Whig and Tory arise out of _addresser_ and _ABHORRER_… * 1949, Felix Morley, _The Power in the People_, page 76 Whether “Petitioner” or “ABHORRER”, his opinion was asked and use of his undistinguished name was requested… * 1966, Robert Gourlay, _General Introduction to Statistical Account of Upper Canada_, page 1: He might be assimilated to a madman, but the honourable Gentleman himself was an ABHORRER, and an ABHORRER could not reason. * 1999, Guy A. J. Tops et alios, _Thinking English Grammar: to honour Xavier Dekeyser_, page 59: The terms _petitioners_ and _ABHORRERs_ in this context were later superseded by Whig and Tory.
