Etymology[edit]

bar +‎ -er

Noun[edit]

barrer (plural barrers)

  1. One who or that which bars.
    • 1976, Imre Lakatos, ‎John Worrall, ‎Elie Zahar, Proofs and Refutations: The Logic of Mathematical Discovery
      The worst merely bars some exceptions without looking at the proof at all. Hence the mystification when we have the proof on the one hand and the exceptions on the other. In the mind of such primitive exception-barrers, the proof and the exceptions exist in two completely separate compartments.
