Word of the Day
Thursday, February 8, 2007
Dragoon (transitive verb) – Harass, coerce, convince to do something by violent measures, persecute with troops (the noun form of this word was a 17th or 18th century armed trooper in a European army) (from French “dragon” insinuating “fire-breather,” and Old French)

Word in a Sentence: In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, Julette dragoons mortals into assisting her with threats upon their lives.

Your turn! What sentence can I dragoon you into making today?

“Some days, you just want the dragon to win.”

Although my son may think his younger sister and I are rough on him at times, he definitely doesn't want the older sister to get wind of his latest problems as he knows she will be trying her level best to dragoon someone in his life into treating her brother differently.
