Consternation

Definition:  a feeling of worry, shock, or fear – often occurs when something unexpected happens

noun

I’ll use it in a sentence:

● The consternation I felt yesterday, as the driver of a green car, drove down the wrong lane, headed straight towards me, left me incredulous.

● When Ellen opened up her paycheck and discovered that it was two hundred dollars less than it should have been, she felt so much consternation about how she would pay her mortgage.

● After being robbed at gunpoint by a man in a ski-mask, the taxi driver had permanent consternation of anyone wearing a mask. 

● Nicole was filled with consternation, as her boss screamed at her, for not acceding his sexual request.*

●  Being parents for the first time, has caused consternation for Yolanda and her husband Ulysses.

DFOWW will be sharing the word: accede, sometime next month in May.

Now it’s your turn, on a sheet of paper, or in the comment section below, write a sentence using the word: consternation.

Tip: Use the word during a conversation today. The more you familiarize yourself with this word, by consistently incorporating it in your vocabulary and writing, the easier it will be to remember the word. Figuratively speaking, you’ll own the word.
