Circumvent (vt)

Last but not least this morning, here is a context clues worksheet on the verb circumvent. It means “to hem in,” “to make a circuit around,” and “to manage to get around especially by ingenuity or stratagem.” This verb is used only transitively, so don’t forget your direct object: what are you circumventing?

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.
