Your RBR Word of the Day: Dolorous

dolorous \DOH-luh-ruhs\, adjective:

Marked by, causing, or expressing grief or sorrow.

One of my philosophy professors liked to tell how he moved to Alabama the day Coach Bryant died, and was completely shocked at the dolorous expressions on the faces of all those around him and even the open weeping of grown men everywhere he went that day.
