Word of the Day
Tuesday, January 23, 2007
Vitiate (transitive verb) – To spoil something; to debase, pervert, ruin, morally corrupt something; to impair the quality of something (the word originates in Latin)

Word in a Sentence: In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, The Master Rothahn knows of Nigel Taiman’s true heritage, and fears it will vitiate not only Chariss’s character and nature, but her resolve to do her duty.

Your turn! This word is rife with suggestion!

Associating with people who are frequently, if not nearly constantly high on drugs, camping out in the local pubs, being in the company of known gangsters, all can easily work to vitiate a young person's mind and spirit.

Questions asked of bankruptcy attorneys that reveal other person's underhanded machinations vitiate my resolve to remain non-homicidal during my divorce proceedings.
