Wednesday Word: Recalcitrant

Recalcitrant - adjective. Wednesday's word is brought to you by my laser printer, which is being extremely obstinate and uncooperative - recalcitrant!

It's a fancy way of saying disobedient, intractable, defiant, insubordinate, rebellious, mutinous, difficult, contrary, willful - it's amazing I can say all these colourful words instead of other colourful words at the moment :-D
