Word of the day: acquiesce

ACQUIESCE

Today was eventful, to say the least. I had to work, went to my first Sex, Relationships and Reproductive Systems class, got my car back from the shop, had a piano lesson, made dinner and watched the Bonnies game with the rest of the student body. That said, I didn’t really have the time to find a word of the night.

This one comes from Theodore Bernstein. I opened to the next page in the book and found “acquiesce.” I didn’t recognize it, so I’m writing about it.

Merriam-Webster says it means to accept passively. An example: “They demanded it, and he acquiesced.”

It’s time to go to bed. School is busy.

One thought on “Word of the day: acquiesce

  1. I learned this way back when Pirates of the Caribbean first came out. Elizabeth Swan says she won’t acquiesce to the captain’s request of dining together. I heard that line so many times without knowing what she said, but I must’ve run across it in a book and finally figured it out.
