Good evening and welcome to Word of the Day! A journey through the English vocabulary and the words that piqued my interest, in WotD we'll be learning a new word for each working day of the week, bar holidays, unless there's a holiday special...
Today's word is:
verb [ with obj. ] informal
Destroy or dispose of (something) irretrievably: someone had deliberately deep-sixed evidence.
ORIGIN: 1920s (as the deep six 'the grave'): perhaps from the custom of burial at a depth of six feet.
