As a start you have to see the following link:
prig: Definition from Answers.com
Student or Learner
I didnt understand the meaning of prig. I have looked it up it in the dictionary. Can you explain, in what sense we can use it in a sentence?
XX is such an insufferable prig.He is so smug(full of himself),does everything by the book and makes you feel like a complete idiot at all times.
I find the way prig is defined in George Eliot's Middlemarch quite useful.
"[...] a prig is a fellow who is always making you a present of his opinions."
hope this helps.
Thank you for your reply : )
