Reprove (vi/vt)

Here, once again, is Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day rendered as a context clues worksheet on the verb reprove. It’s used both intransitively and transitively. It means “to scold or correct usually gently or with kindly intent,” “to express disapproval of : CENSURE,” and “to express rebuke or reproof.”

It’s a solid verb, but perhaps not one students must know. In any case, I’ve done one of my jobs for the day.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
