Usage: Magisterial, Dogmatical, Arrogant. One who is
magisterial assumes the air of a master toward his
pupils; one who is dogmatical lays down his positions
in a tone of authority or dictation; one who is
arrogant insults others by an undue assumption of
superiority. Those who have long been teachers
sometimes acquire, unconsciously, a manner which
borders too much on the magisterial, and may be
unjustly construed as dogmatical, or even arrogant.
