Bitter, in my words

amiter : bitter

The Illunse word for bitter is amiter. Amiter is a rare last name. Amiter is a bad misspelling of amateur.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word biter (bitter, sharp, cutting; stinging), and the Latin word amarus (bitter, brackish, pungent; harsh, shrill).
