[bruhsk] [brĘŚsk]

  • abrupt and curt in manner or speech; discourteously blunt
  • " 'You see, simple peasant, all of this talk has been merely a foreseen tactical feat meant to make you, a provincial simpleton and utter neophyte at society politics, minimally adroit at handling social situations, so that when we get down to the business we must perform, you would not, with your brusque manner and words, arouse unnecessary suspicion.'
