[Homework]2015-07-27 How to Use a Word

Today's word is yaw, spelled Y A W. Yaw is a verb. When used of ship, it means to deviate directly from a cause, as when struct by heavy sea, especially to move from side to side. When used of an airplane, space craft or project air, it means to turn by angular motion about the vertical axis. Yaw can also mean to alternate. Here is the word used in a sentence by Steve Whites in mediam.com. In 2002, contractors explored the rack using a remotely operated submarine. They found ropes and lights from previous visits and work out how the big planes skipped and yawed cross the water before sinking to the bottom. In the hide of large sailing ships numerous lot of words appealed on the horizon, many of which have origins that have never been *. Yaw is one such word. It began showing up in print in the 1,500, fist as a noun, meaning movement off cross or side to side movement and then as a verb. For a more than 350 years it remained a sailing word with occasional sight trips to the figurative sense to alternate. Then * the era of airplane flight in the early 20th century and yawing was no long can find to the sea. Nowadays people who love boats still use yaw much as the sailors of old did. But pilots and astronauts also refer to the yawing of their crafts. I'm Peter * with your word of the day.
