It’s becoming a tradition to post my new words on Monday.
Today I have only four. I haven’t worked in the translation- revision this weekend. My brain was like in formalin. I wasn’t able to concentrate with this flu. I hope tomorrow I feel better.
Here are the words and how I used them, to see if they are used correctly and are still used:
Disquiet: cause worry, make uneasy, disturb. I used it in: “I walked back home, disquieted not only by the noise, but also by a series of emotions that wrapped me.”
Intuit: sense intuitively, perceive through intuition. I used it here: “Perhaps my mother intuited what had happened to me these days”
Divert: distract; entertain; turn in a different direction, deflect. I used it here: “This caused him to laugh diverted, not upset at all by the sarcasm.
Sweep over: overcome, as with emotions or perceptual stimuli [syn: overwhelm, overpower, whelm, overcome, overtake] I used it in: “The people’s emotions were so strong – in particular depression- that sweep over me completely.”
Have an excellent Monday!!
