Moroseness \Mo*rose"ness\, n. Sourness of temper; sulenness. [1913 Webster] Learn good humor, never to oppose without just reason; abate some degrees of pride and moroseness. --I. Watts. [1913 Webster] Note: Moroseness is not precisely peevishness or fretfulness, though often accompanied with it. It denotes more of silence and severity, or ill-humor, than the irritability or irritation which characterizes peevishness. [1913 Webster]
