  1. gatling

    Gatlings: cruel or demeaning words, spoken to someone in rapid fire succession with the intention of hurting someone’s feelings or putting them down.

    He does seem to revel in the times when I get very frustrated with his verbal gatlings.

    Etymology: Sometimes my husband corners me and badgers me with very unkind and demeaning words. This isn’t uncommon and causes a lot of stress and physical discomfort. It can be nearly suffocating. I thought how this word gatlings could be quite representative of this type of oral battering.
