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 ( -plussed, -plussing) [ trans. ] (usu. be nonplussed)

  • Surprise and confuse (someone) so much that they are unsure how to react : Diane was nonplussed by such an odd question.


  • a state of being surprised and confused in this way.

ORIGIN: late 16th cent.: from Latin non plus 'not more.' The noun originally meant [a state in which no more can be said or done.]

So yeah just as I said in the chat sorry for not getting these post up in their usual timeslot... Nonplus or yeah another word for confused, I think this is the second or third time I use a synonym for the same word ^^ oh well...
