-Impudently bold in speech or manner; saucy.
It is also the name of a lunar crater near the Southern limb of the Moon.
Middle English, from ‘mal' - bad + ‘apert’ - open, frank.
First Known Use: 14th century
Used in a sentence:
"Fair ladies, brave knights, churls, varlets, squires, scurvy knaves, men-at-arms, malapert rogues--all were merry.”
~P. G. Wodehouse
Malapert people are often known for their inappropriate sense of humor, and that in-your-face DILLIGAF - YOLO attitude. The quote by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich "Well-behaved women seldom make history…" comes to mind with this word. And while this word is very often applied to women, it's a non gender specific word.
