out- +‎ lash

Noun[edit]

outlash (plural outlashes)

  1. The act of somebody lashing out.
    • George Eliot
      We cannot speak a loyal word and be meanly silent, we cannot kill and not kill in the same moment, but a room is wide enough for the loyal and mean desire, for the outlash of a murderous thought and the sharp backward stroke of repentance.
