It's Wonderful Word Wednesdays! Here's a fun one I stumbled upon.
1.) making or having a harsh sound; grating; creaking: strident insects; strident hinges.
2. having a shrill, irritating quality or character: a strident tone in his writings.
3. Linguistics . (in distinctive feature analysis) characterized acoustically by noise of relatively high intensity, as sibilants, labiodental and uvular fricatives, and most affricates.
Example Sentence: Strident insects tsked as Matt and the graftings walked through the woods.
|Cicada. These bugs can be really annoying.|
