Inveigh (vi)

It was Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day yesterday, and while it’s a little off the beaten track of everyday conversation, it does show up in academic prose frequently enough to at least write this context clues worksheet on the verb inveigh. Interestingly, it is only used transitively, and doesn’t really appear without the preposition before the noun or noun phrase being inveighed against, e.g. “Mr. Feltskog inveighed against putting mayonnaise on corned beef.”
