2. Definition Controversy is a state of prolonged publicdispute or debate, usually concerning amatter of opinion. The word was coined fromthe Latin controversia, as a composite ofcontroversus "turned in an oppositedirection," from contra "against" andvertere to turn, or versus (see verse), hence,"to turn against." 3.
