Dictionary of Problem Words and Expression

Imperious – imperial

These words are derived from the same Latin term

and share a meaning of “domineering,” “overbearing,” “dictatorial”:

“The judge had an Imperious (or imperial) manner in court.”

Originally, Imperious meant “befitting or suitable to an emperor or ruler”

as in Shakespeare’s lines from Hamlet; “ImperiousCaesar, dead and turned to clay,/ Might stop a hole to keep the wind away.”

Now, Imperious is more often used tomean “imperative” or “urgent”:

“There is an Imperious need for food in this stricken area.”

One might speak of an Imperious dictator who lives in the imperial capital city of his country.
