    what's the meaning of...

    approbium?
    read it today in a Guardian article: "In the current climate of approbrium...".
    I've never come across this word before and couldn't find it in any dictionary

    I think they meant 'opprobrium' http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionar...&va=opprobrium

    The Guardian is known as the Grauniad because it has many typos.
