[Homework]2015-07-25 How to Use a Word

Today's word is dubious, spelled D-U-B-I-O-U-S. Dubious is an adjective, that means of doubtful promise or outcome. It can also mean question of or suspect as to true nature or quality, or dubious can mean unsettled in opinion, doubtful.

Here's the word used by Manny Jennison from the ****.news.

Can you work with what I have? He asked, sounding dubious. Absolutely. I said, though I was dubious, too. I ** stage ** with my own furnishes.

The word dubious derives from the Latin word dubius, meaning to hesitate in choices from opinions or causes, and it's related the Latin word for two, duo. Dubious can be used to indicate uncertainty about the result of an action, or the truth of a statement, as well as about the uncertainty of a person and his or her character. In either case, it usually implies a feeling of doubt from suspicion, mistrust or hesitation.

I'm Peter Sokolovski, this was your Word of the Day.
