Word of the Week

Withhold (verb)


Meaning – to refuse to give something that is due, desired or owned by another.


Example of using it in a sentence: “The police withheld the name from the press because they needed to speak to the family first.


Spelling Tip – this word is spelt as it says, the prefix ‘with’ meaning ‘away’ in this case and ‘hold’ meaning ‘hold.’ Something that is “held away and not given”.


with + hold


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.
