New word time!

Okay. I learnt a new word today. My boss said it as he was dictating to me, and I was like “uhh… how do you spell that?” because I’d never heard it spoken before, much less seen it written.

The word I speak of? “Caveat”. Pronounced “Kah-vee-at”.

According to dictionary.com, a caveat is a legal notice to a court or public officer to suspend a certain proceeding until the notifier is given a hearing: a caveat filed against the probate of a will.

Interesting.
