overcivilized (comparative more overcivilized, superlative most overcivilized)

  1. too civilized
    • 2007 January 28, Tina Cassidy, “Cut and Run”, in New York Times[1]:
      Yet if “overcivilized” is synonymous with “educated,” which could equal “having too much information,” which could make anyone neurotic, then it could also be said that city women are overcivilized.
