Where I Found It
I think this another case of having seen the word and realised I liked the sound of it. It really could have been from anywhere. Most likely some kind of book.
An Example Sentence
They easily disparaged the image my father had created of himself.
It seems with all my words I like how they sound and while I do like how this one sounds I don't think it is a major factor in me liking this words. Though I do still love the way the word finishes with that g sound I also like the meaning. I can't say that I have really used this word before but I certainly would like to because I believe it describes quite well of the actions of belittling or discrediting something like say a person. It is likely that I will use this in my writing.
