Proscribe

Proscribe

<pro-skrybe>

forbid; outlaw; prohibit;

to make a law banning something.

We proscribe the throwing of food in this cafe. Please be polite.

Memory trick:
proscribe reminds of prohibit scribe
scribe reminds of- to write a law
we write a law to prohibit something

At work:
We proscribe the excessive use of exclamation points in our advertisements. Three is too many!!!
