Otherworldly Words: Vex


The word vex comes from a word that means to shake or jolt. When someone truly vexes us, it does sometimes feel as we have been physically shaken due to the emotional or mental stress caused by his or her actions. I think that’a great way to think of vex: someone has troubled you to the point that you feel it physically.

One of the things I find most interesting about the word vex is that it can mean “to discuss or debate at great length.” In this meaning, it sheds a pointed light on the nature of debate.
