Definition of imbroglio:
conflict (part of speech: noun)
It is true that a complete imbroglio, worthy of a romance, seems ever threatening to appear upon my monotonous horizon; a regular intrigue seems ever ready to explode in the midst of this little world of mousmes and grasshoppers: Chrysantheme in love with Yves; Yves with Chrysantheme; Oyouki with me; I with no one.- "Madame Chrysantheme Complete", Pierre Loti Last Updated: March 4, 2009.
