Episode Transcript

Welcome to word of the day. Today we’re going to have a new word and that is arrow gate. The word is spelled a RROGATE arrow gate. What does that mean? First of all, is it a verb? Is it a noun? Is it an adjective? Well, arrogate is a verb. And if someone arrogate to themselves something, such as responsibility or privilege, they claim or take it even without they have any right to do so. So they have no right to take responsibility or to take charge to seize responsibility or privilege, but they do it anyway. So when they do this, they arrogate to themselves something for example, we can say the assembly arrogated to itself, the right to make changes and that is not rightfully so. So they shouldn’t do that they don’t have the justification to do this, but they arrogated it to themselves anyway or we can say he arrogated the privilege to himself alone and he has no right he claimed it, but they have no right to do so or he has no right to do so. And synonyms for aggregate are the word sees demand assume or appropriate. So remember, aggregate is a verb, it means to claim or appropriate for oneself without justification. The noun from aggregate is arrogation. ergative is the adjective and for the person who does that, we can call him the arrow Gator. So that was all about the word of the day. arrogate. Remember it is a formal word, and it shows disapproval. you criticize somebody by saying that he or she or an organization does that it is a formal word. It shows disapproval. arrogate for today.
