What is the meaning of the word - appravation. I cannot find it in Thesaurus.

Please help?

Thanks

I've never heard this word. Where did you find it? What is the context?

In my opinion it's either an existing word spelt wrongly or is a recent coining, but there are no obvious signs that appravation exists.

I thought it did, as Tdol answered the other question and did not mention the word appravation to be wrongly spelled. Interesting question, I like new words.

I imagine Tdol - like other people who have replied to this thread (and like me;-)) - suspected the word didn't exist, but was too busy to check. The context ("Esq.") suggests it's a typo for abbreviation.
