Word of the Day
Tuesday, February, 6, 2007
Capitulate (intransitive verb) – To acquiesce; give in; give up all resistance; surrender under specific terms or conditions (from Medieval and late Latin)

Word in a Sentence: In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, Nigel gets Chariss to capitulate regarding her plans to flee Arcana while he is in Bellan.

Your turn! Done any surrendering that you can put in a sentence?

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

If a certain person who phoned me last Friday follows through and calls me again sometime in this decade and talks "nice-nice" to me, I might be willing to capitulate to some other things. We will describe no further than that though as you need not too much imagination there, do you?

How's that for a "run-on" sentence too?

I'm laughing, actually.

Only give up what you're willing to never get back, Sistah!
