     Note: The prevailing usage now is to employ to after averse
           and its derivatives rather than from, as was formerly
           the usage. In this the word is in agreement with its
           kindred terms, hatred, dislike, dissimilar, contrary,
           repugnant, etc., expressing a relation or an affection
           of the mind to an object.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     Syn: Averse, Reluctant, Adverse.
  
     Usage: Averse expresses an habitual, though not of necessity
            a very strong, dislike; as, averse to active pursuits;
            averse to study. Reluctant, a term of the of the will,
            implies an internal struggle as to making some
            sacrifice of interest or feeling; as, reluctant to
            yield; reluctant to make the necessary arrangements; a
            reluctant will or consent. Adverse denotes active
            opposition or hostility; as, adverse interests;
            adverse feelings, plans, or movements; the adverse
            party.
            [1913 Webster]
