Feint or faint – lesson learned

9780877798750_p0_v2_s260x420When someone corrects you, don’t get your feathers ruffled. Learn from the mistake and, as we have done today, share the knowledge with others. YDST used the wrong word in yesterday’s tip – writing ‘feint of heart’ instead of ‘faint of heart’ – thanks to Steeleworker Bryan Hubbell for calling us on that. We appreciate that you don’t let us get away with much … lessons are learned every day! So, we share:

  • feint
    • verb: make a deceptive or distracting movement, typically during a fight.
    • noun: a deceptive or pretended blow, thrust, or other movement, especially in boxing or fencing.
  • faint
    • verb: lose consciousness for a short time because of a temporarily insufficient supply of oxygen to the brain.
    • noun: a sudden loss of consciousness.
    • adjective: weak and dizzy; close to losing consciousness – or – barely perceptible.
