, a. [F., fr. L. impertinens,
-entis; pref. im- not + pertinens. See Pertinent
1. Not pertinent; not pertaining to the matter in hand;
having no bearing on the subject; not to the point;
Things that are impertinent to us. --Tillotson.
How impertinent that grief was which served no end!
2. Contrary to, or offending against, the rules of propriety
or good breeding; guilty of, or prone to, rude,
unbecoming, or uncivil words or actions; as, an impertient
coxcomb; an impertient remark.
3. Trifing; inattentive; frivolous.
Syn: Rude; officious; intrusive; saucy; unmannerly;
meddlesome; disrespectful; impudent; insolent.
. A person is
officious who obtrudes his offices or assistance where
they are not needed; he is impertinent when he
intermeddles in things with which he has no concern.
The former shows a lack of tact, the latter a lack of
breeding, or, more commonly, a spirit of sheer
impudence. A person is rude when he violates the
proprieties of social life either from ignorance or
wantonness. “An impertinent man will ask questions
for the mere gratification of curiosity; a rude man
will burst into the room of another, or push against
his person, inviolant of all decorum; one who is
officious is quite as unfortunate as he is
troublesome; when he strives to serve, he has the
misfortune to annoy.”
--Crabb. See Impudence
An impertinent person. [R.]
