Peremptory is an adjective that means dictatorial or not allowing contradictions.

Our word of the day is derived from Latin. The word perimere (per ee MARE ay) means ‘to take entirely.’ A peremptory ruler is one that does not allow any kind of descent from their rule.

The king’s rule was fully peremptory. Any attempt to oppose him was immediately stopped.
