It's not a word that I have often come across in English and I was wondering if there were any article in the LE Network containing that word. I found only one article. It's a poem, where "an affront" means an "insult" or something "offending".
Here is the poem:-
As summer into autumn slipsAnd yet we sooner say"The summer" than "the autumn," lestWe turn the sun away.And almost count it an affrontThe presence to concedeOf one however lovely, notThe one that we have loved.So we evade the charge of yearsOn one attempting shy.The circumvention of the shaftOf life's declivity.Source: http://english-magazine.org...
