Meaning – something that is right, suitable or proper in the circumstances
Example of using it in a sentence: "When you are told ‘no’ by your parents what is the appropriate response?”
The word can also mean to ‘steal’ in law courts. When you look at the Latin root word meaning “to make your own” so you can see how it has become a negative legal term.
Spelling Tip – it is the double ‘pp’ at the start most of us miss, so say it as it is broken down.
ap + pro + pri + ate
Use the word as many times throughout the week as you can. This can be verbally, in your written work or listen out for other people using it.
