Word For The Moment: Irredentism

An Economist article printed, what I thought to be, a rare typographical error: "...such as Yugoslavia and an enlarged Romania, leaving Hungary embittered, irredentist and an easy prey for fascism.

I have not heard of the word 'Irrendentist' before but, lo and behold, the internet to the rescue, see the meaning in Wikipedia.

That is why I enjoy reading The Economist.
