WOTD: Askance

You can’t look askance from this word. You’ll come across it sooner or later!

askance (adv., v.) IPA Pronunciation: askance
(v.) to turn aside, to divert
(adv.) sideways, surreptitiously OR with disdain, maliciously, scornfully

Thou canst not frown, thou canst not look askance,
Nor bite the lip, as angry wenches will,
– The Taming of the Shrew (II.i)

The word is used in the works only as an adverb as far as I can tell, except for in The Rape of Lucrece, though you probably won’t read that. But you should!
