The word aberrant is very easy to visualize and remember. But before we do that, let’s have a look at the dictionary definition for aberrant, which is as follows:
1. departing from the right, normal, or usual course. (adjective)
2. deviating from the ordinary, usual, or normal type; exceptional; abnormal. (adjective)
3. an aberrant person, thing, group, etc. (noun)
Masters Tip to remember Aberrant:
There is a simple division of the word that we need to put in place: ABERRANT= AB+ERR+ANT
So aberrant for us is an ant that has erred (in between, err means to wander from a direct course or at random). Now, now aberrant makes a lot of sense: it’s all about wandering of your course, like the ant in the image above is an aberrant one.
There a there a number of such aberrant examples in our somewhat aberrant lives that we can draw off. Right from our school days, we struggled to stay in line and always moved out of the file. That was aberrant behavior. The same applies to our present day: we so love to think that we can do any random thing on any day. Now that is our aberrant behavior at its best.
In terms of usage, the word can be used in the following ways:
1. Although the media is quick to list the “aberrant” characteristics of a school shooter, the truth is that they fit all teens at some point in their adolescence! –http://www.jodipicoult.com.au
2. You cannot convincingly argue that Vivienne Eliot should not have been placed in an insane asylum while documenting behavior that a number of people highly accustomed to and tolerant of “aberrant” social behavior considered beyond the pale and unacceptable..– www.wordnik.com
