    Question is pragmatic offensive

    is it rude to use the term pragmatic in order to define way of working and management of any individual?

    how do we use the phrase ' lord it over', and 'gloss over' in a sentence. Could You give an example.

    lord it over - Idioms - by the Free Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    "Pragmatic" is not considered a rude word.

    Note my corrections to your post above. Remember the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always caitalse the word "I".
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Do not put a space after an opening quotation mark or before a closing quotation mark.
    - Always put a space before an opening quotation mark or after a closing quotation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
