Word of the Day: Deep-six

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:


|ˈdip ˈˌsɪks|

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.
