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:

caveat

|ˈkavēˌät; ˈkäv-|

noun

  • A warning or proviso of specific stipulations, conditions, or limitations.
  • Law. A notice, esp. in a probate, that certain actions may not be taken without informing the person who gave the notice.

ORIGIN: mid 16th cent.: from Latin, literally 'let a person beware.'
