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 [ trans. ]

Fail to fulfill the hopes or expectations of (someone) : I have no wish to disappoint everyone by postponing the visit.


Prevent (hopes or expectations) from being realized : public ownership had sadly disappointed socialist hopes.

ORIGIN: late Middle English (in the sense [deprive of an office or position] ): from Old French desappointer.
