Rue

Rue

<rew>

regret; lament; grieve;

feeling remorse for a past action.

I rue the day that I stopped exercising.

Memory trick:
Rue reminds of re as in RE-gret

Used at work:
I rue the day I hired him. He never completes a project.


Yesterday:
Equivocation

<ee-qwiv-vo-kay-shun?

speaking in an unclear way to hide your meaning.

His equivocation was confusing. We never knew what he was saying.

Memory trick:
Equi reminds of equal.
Vocation reminds of vacation.
Equal is on vacation because it makes no sense.

Used at work.
I am tired of the equivocation in your reports. Please write them in a clear way.
