I was "somewhere" yesterday and there was a loud lady who boldly, proudly declared she had never heard the word chagrin before. She pronounced it ch-argin (with the "ch" like the "ch" in chocolate). Words! They are tricky- and if we've never encountered a word there's no shame. But there's also no pride. So for all those loud ladies out there:
Noun: Distress or embarrassment at having
failed or been humiliated.
Verb: Feel distressed or humiliated.
Surprisingly, she was not chagrined by her total lack of knowledge.
Much to the loud lady's chagrin, no one in the room sympathized with her.
Now you are so much smarter!!
