Source : The Free Dictionary

Etymology : Mid-15th century, but rare before early 19th century, from Latin vituperationem (nominative vituperatio) “blame, a blaming, censuring,” from past participle stem of vituperare “disparage, find fault with,” from vitiperos “having faults,” from vitium “fault, defect” + parare “prepare, provide, procure”. Vituperatio was stronger than either Latin reprehensio or Modern English vituperation.
