Well, it’s been a long day today, but hey Happy Friday! It’s finally the end of the work week, and I can’t believe I’m saying this but I have never been happier to be this busy during the summer to keep me focused!

Initial inference

Okay this one seems to simple because, well…we’ve all come across this one. Based on just the ending of the word, “ail,” it seems like a noun or verb. The word seems very similar to “assault,” hence I’m presuming it means:

To attack.

Definition and Pronunciation

verb | uh-SAIL

  1. to attack violently : assault

  2. to encounter, undertake, or confront energetically

  3. to oppose, challenge, or criticize harshly and forcefully

  4. a) to trouble or afflict in a manner that threatens to overwhelm

    b) to be perceived by (a person, a person’s senses, etc.) in a strongly noticeable and usually unpleasant way

Example usage

I would use the word in a sentence as follows:

Tonight, on May 29, 2020, we saw protestors all across the nation standing up for the injustice happening across the nation against black people, and close to the CNN center we witness protestors assailing a police officer in reaction to this situation.
