When you refer to an individual as being `cussed’, what you mean is that he is very stubborn; he doesn’t readily agree or cooperate with people.
Pronunciation: The first syllable `cuss’ rhymes with the words `fuss’ and `bus’. The `ed’ that follows sounds like the `ed’ in `wanted’, `hunted’, and `slanted’. The main stress is on the first syllable.
One of the meaning of the word ‘cussed’ is someone who doesn’t help others. The word is probably used to show disapproval.
`Cussed’ is considered rather old fashioned, and is normally used in informal contexts.
Example: Gayathri, my cousin’s daughter, is so cussed that she always does the opposite of what her parents tell her to.
